Wine Advocate 93 points - Even more impressive is the 2011 Seventeen Forty Reserve. A blend of 70% Cabernet Franc and 30% Merlot that spent 16 months in 70% new French oak, it possesses complex notes of tobacco leaf, black currants, lead pencil shavings and crushed flowers to go with a voluptuously textured, rich, yet focused and structured palate. The purity and balance here are impressive and this beauty will continue to shine through 2021. Drink now-2021.  (Aug 2013)

Wine Enthusiast 90 points - This is an unusual blend of 70% Cabernet Franc and 30% Merlot. It’s full-bodied and rich in black cherries, currants, cola, sugared coffee and cedar, with a long, spicy finish that lasts the better part of a minute. It’s also tannic, and while the official alcohol reading is 14.2% by volume, feels hotter than than that. Delicious and refined, but it’s hard to see it developing in the bottle, so drink over the next few years. (Dec 2013)
