92pts James Suckling

This has an array of bright, red-fruit aromas and flavors with a fresh and crunchy palate that offers a cedary-oak frame to the bright, redder-toned berries. Fresh, assertive tannins.

90pts Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Noticeably herbal (sage and bay leaf) and tea-like on the nose, the 2017 Prelude Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon also delivers attractive raspberry fruit. From a cool vintage, it's only medium-bodied, with a firm, slightly chewy structure and cherry fruit on the finish. Give it another year or two to relax and drink it over the next decade.

Winemaker Notes

Bright, lively and fragrant nose with blackcurrants and dark cherries, combining with higher notes of clove, cummin, black cardamon and star anise. Beneath subtle notes of coffee and cocoa lie in the background. Fine and delicately structured palate featuring boysenberries, blackcurrants and plums. Volume and density through the mid-palate is balanced with a bright mineral acid line, finishing with seamless tannins.
