Vinous 87 points - Bright, saturated ruby-red. Slightly high-toned aromas of currant, raspberry and exotic spices; shows some evolved notes of loam and nutty oak. Enters the mouth mellow, but a slightly edgy oak element and disjointed acidity clash with the maturing flavors of raspberry, loam and spices. Finishes a bit dry. Not up to past vintages.  (May 2013)

Wine Advocate 92 points - Raised for 18 months in new French oak, the 2008 Gravel Quarry Cabernet Sauvignon has a rich, powerful bouquet with copious blackberry, kirsch and peppermint aromas that take no prisoners. The palate is full-bodied with ripe, succulent black cherries and dark plum. It is very well balanced with fine tannins, while the finish brash, silky smooth finish. This is ostentatious but not over-bearing. Drink now-2020.  (Dec 2012)

Wine Spectator 90 points - A very solid, modern style, with an ample dose of dark espresso and toast, but enough blackberry, plum and cherry paste flavors to soak it up. The dark chocolate-coated finish is nicely polished. Drink now through 2015.óJ.M. (Nov 7 2012)
