92 points - Wine Spectator. "Sleek in feel and restrained in profile, with subtle black tea and anise notes leading to a very focused core of cherry and plum purée flavors. A flash of apple wood appears on the finish. Nicely done. Drink now through 2028."
Cuttings combines the deep, intense flavor of Cabernet Sauvignon with the structure and richness of Petite Sirah and Syrah. A small amount of Zinfandel adds a nice layer of complexity and spiciness. Deliciously smooth with flavors of blueberry, dark cherry, and cocoa. Aromas of fresh roasted coffee, black currant, vanilla bean, brown spice, and wild berries.
