90 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Tanbark Hill Vineyard is medium garnet-purple in color with very pretty kirsch, red rose and cinnamon stick notes over a core of crushed black cherries and mulberries. The palate is medium to full-bodied with generous red and black fruits supported by ripe, grainy tannins and oodles of freshness, finishing earthy." - Robert M. Parker, Jr. (29th Jun 2018)

90+ Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Phaedrus is a 550-case cuvée from a vineyard southwest of St. Helena situated at the foothills of the Mayacamas Mountains. Made from a blend of 84% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Petit Verdot and Malbec, it was aged 20 months in 25% new French oak. It reveals a deep ruby/purple color, sweet red and blackcurrant fruit, a fresh, lively mouthfeel, moderate tannins and a lush style. This beauty will benefit from several years of cellaring, and should drink well for 10-15 years." - Robert Parker (Oct 2014)

96 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The flagship, black-labeled 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Fortis Napa Valley is truly a brilliant wine. Everything is perfectly proportioned: wood, acidity, alcohol and tannin. Notes of black cherry, blackcurrant and blueberry soar from the wine’s aromas. A touch of wood, lead pencil shavings and spring flowers are also present. The wine is full-bodied, but delicately strung together, à la high fashion. This is a real beauty – full-bodied, yet stylish. While drinkable now, it promises to continue to age well and possibly evolve for another 12-15+ years." - Robert M. Parker, Jr. (Oct 2014)

95 Points - Wine Spectator Magazine:
"An iron fist in a velvet glove, this wine begins with a supple, rich core of currant, black cherry, anise and sage, firming up with tannins from oak and grape. Glides along gracefully, never losing the core fruitiness, while the tannins and gravelly earth accents lend the flavors tension and traction. Drink now through 2029. 7,269 cases made." – JL (Web Only - 2015)
