Wine Advocate

The 2020 Cabernet Sauvignon Relevant comes from younger vines at Crown Point and is made in an earlier-drinking style. It's blended with 10% Malbec, 5% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot and was matured for 20 months in about one-third new French oak. It has aromas that might lead you to Europe rather than California, its deep core of cassis laced with alluring herbal undertones, plus accents of chocolate, soy sauce and garrigue. The full-bodied palate is plush and approachable, with an understated core of mineral-driven fruit, fresh acidity and a long finish laced with new oak spices.


Wine Enthusiast

Dark blackberry aromas are wrapped in spicy oak and nuanced in clipped oregano on the nose of this bottling. The palate offers rich flavor of caramel, baked red fruit and coffee bean, riding atop creamy tannins. Expect graceful aging, so drink now–2034.

The 2020 Relevant comes from younger vines and more loamy soils and is based on 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Malbec, and 5% each Merlot and Petit Verdot. Its deep ruby/plum hue is followed by a gorgeous bouquet of blackcurrants, mulled cherries, tobacco, chocolate, and spicy oak. Rich and medium to full-bodied, it has beautiful fruit, a great mid-palate, and velvety yet still present tannins. A gorgeous wine, it would run you twice the cost if it were from Napa.
