95pts Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Made from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, the deep garnet-purple colored 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Incubo takes some coaxing to reveal beautifully perfumed notes of lilacs, eucalyptus, chocolate box and unsmoked cigars with a core of blackcurrant cordial and plum puddling plus a hint of pencil lead. Medium-bodied, the palate has impressive intensity and purity with a firm line of ripe, grainy tannins and lovely freshness, finishing long and layered. 195 cases were made.
This is a real blockbuster Mt. Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon that combines wonderful notes of black currant, blackberry, cigar box and black cherry, toffee and cocoa. The wine is fat and rich with deftly textured tannins. The finish goes from blackberry to violets to orange blossom, lingering for what seems like an eternity. There is a very small percentage of Cabernet Franc that lifts the mid palate and brightens the intense aromatics.
