96-98 Points, Wine Advocate: "A barrel sample coming from the Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard, block C1 planted to clone 4, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon CCS has a very deep purple-black color and vibrant nose of crushed blueberries and black cherries with touches of mocha, beef dripping and cloves plus a hint of underbrush. The medium to full-bodied palate gives up pure, intense black fruit flavors and a solid backbone of grainy tannins, finishing long and earthy." 12/17
94-95 Points, James Suckling: "A dense and rich CCS with dark berries and chocolate and spices. Hazelnuts, too. Full-bodied, round and juicy. A flavorful finish. We will see." 5/18
94 Points, James Molesworth, Wine Spectator: "Features a deep well of dark currant, fig and blackberry paste flavors, shrouded for now in ganache and roasted vanilla notes. Shows tarry grip on the back end, with good latent energy and a finishing kick of fruit. Wait this out with some cellaring. Best from 2021 through 2034." 7/19
98-100 Points, www.jebdunnuck.com: "I think the gem in the lineup (which is splitting hairs as these are all gorgeous wines) is the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard CCS. Tasting like the essence of Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon with its incredible cassis, blueberry, graphite, violet and scorched earth aromas and flavors, it hits the palate with full-bodied richness, polished tannin, and a purity of fruit and elegance that's hard to believe. It's going to be impossible to resist on release (and if I had a bottle I'd probably open it the day I received it) but will certainly benefit from 3-4 years of bottle age and keep for 25+ years." 12/17
