Wine & Spirits, 95 Points 

"This wine blends fruit from the winery’s Blue Mountain estate, Red Mountain Vineyard and Phinny Hill. Dark and succulent from the moment it’s poured, it feels like a drama between power and grace. There’s a substantial oak frame, and yet light aromatics effortlessly slip through that architecture—violets, pine and olive. A Blue-Mountain evergreen note carries through on the palate, a delicious counterpoint to the dark intensity of the fruit from Red Mountain and Phinny Hill. The components come together with a textural refinement that’s completely satisfying." 

Jeb Dunnuck, 95 Points 

"Mostly Cabernet Sauvignon yet with 6% Cabernet Franc, the 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon The Illusionist Reserve offers lots of cassis and blue fruits to go with a rich, medium to full-bodied mouthfeel, building tannins, and classic Cabernet notes of tobacco and lead pencil. It's already approachable yet has enough tannins to warrant 2-4 years in the cellar." 

James Suckling, 93 Points 

"Plum, blackcurrant and anise on the nose. Full-bodied with velvety tannins. Rich and powerful palate. Juicy black fruit and cedar come through. Rosemary, too. Very good intensity and depth. Best after 2024." 

Wine Spectator, 93 Points 

"Expressive and well-knit, showing a backbone of lively acidity and tannins that propel black currant, clove and forest floor accents." 

Winemaker Notes: 

"The 2019 Illusionist is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc, sourced from our estate blocks at Blue Mtn. Vineyard, Red Mtn. Vineyard, and Phinny Hill Vineyard. Aged for 20 months in 52% new French oak, it has a knockout nose of blue and purple fruits, with incense and spice notes lingering in the background. The palate shows tons of cassis, blueberries, Italian plums, leafy herbs, and spice."
