93 points "Bright red-ruby. Reticent but complex cabernet aromas of dark berries and minerals. Sweet, dense and sappy; not particularly showy today but boasts outstanding energy to its currant and mineral flavors. Most impressive today on the superb resounding finish, which features substantial smooth tannins and outstanding lift. (93-95)."

94 points "The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon (virtually all Cabernet Sauvignon) exhibits rich blackcurrant, forest floor, unsmoked cigar tobacco, and hints of licorice and new barriques. Dominated by its fruit, this full-bodied, plush, opulent wine is a seamless, classic example of hillside Napa Cabernet Sauvignon. It can be drunk early, but should age effortlessly for two decades or more." Best -2034

98 points "Endless, seamless and totally voluptuous in the glass, Naoko Dalla Valle's 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon is just as magnificent from bottle as it was from barrel. The tannins are nearly buried in an intense, stunningly beautiful wine that captivates all the senses with its exotic bouquet, voluptuous fruit and phenomenal length. Raspberry jam, spices, new leather and cedar add notes of complexity on the finish. What a gorgeous wine this is. (98+)." Best 2022-2032
