“The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon SJ Ranch Vineyard from Alexander Valley has a medium ruby-purple color and layered aromas of red and black currants and wafts of aniseed, mint chocolate, cedar and violets. The palate is medium-bodied with ideal ripeness and good lift, finishing with classy new oak spices.” 95 pts – Erin Brooks, Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate
