Acclaim

91-93 points, Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate, Oct 2016
"A potentially long-aged wine is the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Hawkeye, from the hillside benchlands of the Alexander Valley. At nearly 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, aged in all French oak (54% new) for 21 months, this wine has a dense purple color and plenty of blackcurrants, licorice, vanilla and spice box. It is full-bodied, powerful, tannic, and should be cellared for a good 4-5 years and drunk over the following two decades."
