Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The 2001 Cabernet Sauvignon (actually 80% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Merlot) displays chocolate espresso notes along with some damp earth and black currants in a medium-bodied, drinkable style that has shed most of its tannin. The wine has a nice lushness, and the finish is very good, with no hard edges. It should drink nicely for another decade or more." - Robert M. Parker, Jr. (1st May 2011)

"There are 375 cases of the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon The Grade from the Winfield Vineyard, which spent 20 months in French oak. It exhibits a dense purple color in addition to beautiful aromas of crème de cassis, forest floor and spice box, a deep, opulent, multidimensional mouthfeel, tremendous purity and silky tannins. It can be drunk now or cellared for 10-15 years." - Robert M. Parker, Jr. (Oct 2014)

Hillrock grows all the grain used in their whiskeys on their farm and processes the malt in their own malthouse, the first distillery to do both since BEFORE Prohibition.
Notes from the Distillery:
After aging in the Solera and Oloroso Sherry casks, this unique American whiskey is then finished in fine Napa Valley Cabernet wine casks. The multi-barrel aging of this copper/amber whiskey with slight red hues in appearance offers a caramel-vanilla nose full of fruit (cherry, blackberry and citrus) and sweet desserts (taffy, caramelized sugar, plum and caramel). Warm and sweet notes of vanilla, toffee and French oak complimented by a bouquet of floral and fruity notes – black cherry, currant, violet and nuts complete the palate before leading to a long and vanilla-focused finish, highlighted with cherry and cabernet flavors.

97 Points - James Suckling:
“I love the character of crushed berries, dried dirt and sliced raw meat. Decadent. Full body. Round and creamy tannins in texture. So polished and beautiful. It goes on for minutes. 96% cabernet Sauvignon with Petit Verdot. Give this two or three years to come together. Better after 2021.”

"The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon is every bit as monumental as it was from barrel last year. Rich, deep and powerful, the 2016 is endowed with tremendous fruit concentration and all of the structure to back it up. Wild, savory and super-expressive from the very first taste, the 2016 is utterly magnificent. Wild cherry, grilled herbs, new leather, licorice and mocha infuse the 2016 with tremendous brooding power. The 2016 represents a striking, contemporary expression. All the Mayacamas signatures are there, but with just an extra kick of finesse that makes the 2016 a Cabernet of total allure. " - Antonio Galloni (Jan 2020)

97+ Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Samantha's is made of 100% Cabernet Sauvignon aged for 21 months in 86% new French oak. This is a vineyard selection blend usually harvested slightly later. Very deep purple-black in color, it leaps from the glass with vibrant cassis, blackberry pie and preserved plums scents with nuances of mocha, pencil shavings, menthol, lilacs and cloves plus a touch of chargrilled meat. The medium to full-bodied palate is super intense with layer upon layer of black fruits, savory and floral notions and a rock-solid foundation of grainy tannins, finishing very long and very minerally. 698 cases produced." - Lisa Perrotti-Brown (31st Jan 2019)

97 Points - James Suckling:
"This is a solid and powerful To Kalon with blueberries, currants and minerals. Hint of lead pencil. Full-bodied, yet reserved. Steely, very polished and structured. Needs three to five years. Try after 2023." - (8 Jan, 2020 )
