92 points "ombines power with finesse in a Pauillac-like style, with rich layers of loamy earth, currant, sage, herb, olive, graphite and cedary oak. Firm, focused, taut and balanced, turning supple at points before closing up. Offers a hint of what lies ahead. Best from 2012 through 2020. 2,100 cases made. –JL" Best 2013-2020

95 points "The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon appears to have clamped down a bit since I tasted it last year. An unusually up-front, juicy wine from Forman, the 2009 is laced with expressive dark red fruit, flowers, mint, cinnamon, licorice and menthol. There is a softness and suppleness to the 2009 that is impossible not to love. Layers of fruit continue to build on the juicy, silky finish. The 2009 looks to be one of the more accessible wines of the vintage, but it also needs at least several years to lose some of its baby fat and primary notes. The French oak is also a bit prominent, providing one clue as to the wine’s ultimate potential vis-a-vis the monumental 2010. The 2009 is 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Cabernet Franc, 8% Petit Verdot and 5% Merlot. Anticipated maturity: 2017-2029. " Best 2017-2029
