2019 Lightning Bolt | 97 PointsJan 2022The 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Lightning Bolt is a blend of the four best barrels in the cellar. Deep, inky and plush, the 2019 offers up an exciting mélange of dark cherry, plum, spice, chocolate and new leather. This plush, layered Cabernet opens up beautifully with a bit of time in the glass. There is an effortlessness to the 2019 that is so alluring. — Antonio Galloni

Press & Reviews
2019 Master Boutellier | 93 PointsNov 2021This is fresh and lively with fine tannins and lively sensibility. Medium-bodied with lovely savory character. Nice bones to this. Crisp finish. Easy drinkability. Drink now. — James Suckling
2019 Les Bouquinistes | 93 PointsNov 2021Firmness and brightness to this, with blackberry, spice, and black fruit. Medium to full body, creamy tannins and a juicy finish. Savory in the center-palate. A field-blend of petite sirah, merlot, syrah, cabernet franc, malbec and cabernet sauvignon. Drink or hold. — James Suckling
2019 Lightning Bolt | 96 PointsNov 2021Lovely richness and depth with round, velvety tannins and a dusty texture. Medium-to full-bodied and savory, with a refined texture and good length. Just a touch of vanilla. This will really improve with another year or two in bottle. — James Suckling
2018 Cabernet Sauvignon | 94 PointsJan 2020The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon is a powerful wine that captures all of the brooding intensity that is the signature of Kenefick Ranch, where this fruit is sourced. Black cherry, plum, grilled herbs, licorice, menthol, gravel and scorched earth infuse the 2018 with tremendous character. I would give the 2018 at least a few years in bottle to soften. There is plenty to look forward to.. — Antonio Galloni
2016 Cuvée 37.2 | 94 PointsOctober 2018A blend of 65% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Franc and 5% Petit Verdot, the 2016 Proprietary Red Cuvee 37.2 is deep garnet-purple in color with a nose of crushed blackberries, red currants and black cherries with wafts of cedar chest, yeast extract and black olives plus sage hints. The palate is full-bodied, rich and concentrated with grainy tannins and quite earthy in mouth, finishing long. — Robert Parker
