|Description:||90 points Wine Spectator : "[$15 list] Focused, refined and appealing for its open-weave texture around a generous core of plum and currant fruit, finishing with hints of coffee and dark chocolate. Drink now through 2014. Smart Buys. (12/15/11)". 89 points California Grapevine : "[$15 list] Medium-dark purplish ruby color; attractive, initially restrained, cedary, ripe dark plum and blackberry aroma with earthy notes and hints of licorice and graphite; medium-full to full body; relatively big, rich, extracted, cedary, ripe blackberry and blueberry flavors with notes of cassis and creamy oak; medium-full to full tannin; a bit rough on the finish; lingering aftertaste. Very pleasing and enjoyable to drink now as it developed with airing to show some complexity. Highly recommended. 14.5% alcohol; blended with 7% Cabernet Franc, 3% Syrah, and 2% Malbec; released June 2011. (Feb 2012)" 88 points Connoisseurs' Guide : "[$15 list] Filling much the same niche as the wine above, the H3 Cabernet Sauvignon is a well-scrubbed middleweight that is rounded in feel, sweetened with oak, and it leans a little to ripeness. Its varietal tannins will keep it going for several years, but it is very drinkable now and should do the trick in washing down simply grilled meats. Good Value. (Dec 2011)"|
