James Suckling, 97 Points 

"One of the great, contemporary interpretations of Napa cabernet, this has a stunning nose of ripe cassis and plums with delicate cocoa-powder, licorice and sage notes. Very concentrated but also super-bright and really graceful, as it glides over the palate. This has minerality that’s rare in California, adding an extra element of vitality to the very long finish." 

Vinous,97 Points 

"The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Kronos is a thrilling, riveting wine that captures all the vintage has to offer. A vertical spine of tannin gives the wine shape and vibrancy. Powerful and dense, with tremendous concentration, the 2016 bristles with energy. The interplay of rich fruit and classic structure makes for an absolutely compelling wine. Readers will have to be patient, starting with the fact that the 2016 won't be released until 2019 or possibly even 2020. This is a positively stunning wine from Cathy Corison." 

John Gilman, 96 Points 

"Cathy Corison’s 2016 vintage from the Kronos Vineyard comes in at a refined 13.3 percent octane and looks destined to be one of the legendary vintages of this great, old vine cuvée. The bouquet wafts from the glass in a very elegant constellation of black cherries, cassis, Cuban cigar wrapper, a gorgeous base of soil, those signature Rutherford Bench scents of allspice, gentle smokiness and a very refined base of new oak. On the palate the wine is very precise, full-bodied and suave in profile, with a great core of perfectly ripe fruit, beautiful undertow from the soil, fine-grained, ripe tannins and stunning length and grip on the nascently complex, seamless and dancing finish. This is classically balanced for long aging and, as a result, is fairly tightly-knit out of the blocks, but with sufficient bottle age, there is nothing but magic that awaits! To my palate, this is one of Cathy’s most brilliant wines of her career, and she has been on a hot streak since Reagan was president!" 

Wine Enthusiast, 95 Points 

"Given 20 months in French oak, half of it new, this is a remarkably supple, complex and elegantly crafted wine from the great site, a monument to the happy marriage between winemaker and site, the latter still on St. George rootstock and over four-decades old in age. Cedar, rose, tangy currant and ash ride along a thread of crisp, persistent acidity and thick tannin. This wine will do well in the cellar. *Cellar Selection*
