Wine Advocate, May 2020: "A blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc, the 2016 Exhibition Red Blend opens to a nose of condensed fruits with an herbal edge, baked earth and oak aromas with an inky and dense expression. Medium to fullbodied in the mouth, the wine shows more complexity than the nose leads on, with a dark, spicy core of fruit tied together with a mineral backbone and good tannic structure across the mid-palate. The finish lingers with flavors of blackberry sauce and red pepper flakes in chocolate powder."

Wine Advocate, May 2020: "A blend of Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, the 2016 Cirque pops out of the glass with a balanced, juicy expression of black fruit with thoughtful herbal tones before offering up hints of oak and chocolate-covered cherries. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is clean and has a soft herbal expression that lingers through to the mid-palate. Ending with lingering flavors of blackberry, cherry and plum on the finish, it beckons me back for a second sip."

Wine Advocate, May 2020: "The 2016 Vertical has a heart of robust dark fruits, dried herbs and leather with soft floral and oaky aromas in the glass. Medium to full-bodied, the palate has a concentrated fruit expression with spicy herbs and pepper tones."
