"The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve also has roughly 4% each of Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Syrah. It was aged for 14 months in French oak (half new) and comes in at 13% alcohol. I had a minor preference for this compared to its younger sibling (the 2014) reviewed this issue, because this shows a bit more concentration. To be sure, it also benefits from being a bit more developed. It seems quite gorgeous at the moment, elegant but relatively full compared to the 2014, with a beautiful finish that shows just a bit of grip and a hint of herbs. This is relatively modest in power, following the style of Flam's offerings this issue, but it has little more than most of the offerings. To add to its nice structure, it tastes great. It should hold pretty well for a decade or so and it may yet have a chance to improve. It is pretty sexy now." -Mark Squires, Feb 2017
