Vinous 95 Points: “The Kenefick Cabernet Sauvignon Chris’s Cuvée captures all of the intensity of this Calistoga site. Black fruit, leather, licorice, smoke, grilled herbs, and chocolate all built in the glass. Ample and resonant, with tremendous richness the wine is positively stellar. Give the firm yet well-integrated tannins a bit of time to soften.”
Wine Enthusiast 95 Points: ”This powerful, concentrated wine is also straightforward and no-nonsense in style, as deep and delicious black currant and blueberry flavors are firmly wrapped in fine-grained tannins, waiting for time to bring out further nuances. Hints of mint, cedar, and cocoa suggest the complexity that will develop. Best from 2028–2040. “
Winery Notes: “Heavier crop loads and a very cool growing season allowed for some ideal extended hang time. Perfect fall weather gave way to even ripeness patiently brought in throughout the valley. Baker’s chocolate, fine tobacco leaf, and a brooding dark fruit profile form an intense nose. Balanced tannin-to-oak ratios support the jammy and refined fresh berry profile. The wine is a blend of 87% Cabernet Sauvignon 7% Malbec 6% Petit Verdot”
