95+ points Limited new Cabernet from Aperture. a great up-and-coming label from Sonoma's Alexander Valley. Limited. 97+ Robert Parker: "The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Del Rio Vineyard is stunning and singular this vintage and made entirely of Cabernet Sauvignon. Deep ruby-purple, it offers aromas of tapenade, dried herbs, graphite, mushroom powder and loads of floral aromas over a core of cassis and blue fruits. The full-bodied palate is slow to unfurl, but when it does—wow! Layered and concentrated, it's wrapped in a finely pixelated frame with a streak of minerality and great freshness to lift the very long finish."
