Reviews & Accolades

Vinos — 91

The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Seraphim offers a bit more complete sense of balance than the straight Cabernet bottling. Here the flavors lean more into the red/purplish end of the spectrum. Red cherry jam, pomegranate, cinnamon, cedar and mocha linger on the intense, tannic finish. I would prefer to drink the 2017 sooner rather than later.

Jeb Dunnuck — 92

The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Seraphim has a masculine bouquet of black plums, singed cedar, chocolate, and currants, with plenty of spice developing with time in the glass. It’s rich, medium to full-bodied, has good concentration, and just a backward, closed style. Nevertheless, it has terrific purity, a great mid-palate, and is going to benefit from 4-5 years of bottle age.

Robert Parker — 89

Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Seraphim gives up warm cassis, baked plums and sassafras with hints of black olives and fragrant soil plus a waft of dried sage. The palate is full-bodied, firm and chewy with a good core of berry preserves with a firm, chewy finish.

James Suckling — 92

A dense and layered young red with velvety, chewy tannins and lots of terracotta and blackberry character. Full and juicy. Needs time to soften. Very well done for the vintage. Better after 2021.

Sommeliers Choice Awards — 86 Silver

Rich and robust. A wine built to age. Notes of rich ripe berries and ripe green peppers. This wine should be decanted and should be laid down until at least 2025.

This is the Wallis Family’s hotrod Cabernet from Diamond Mountain and it definitely has the horsepower for the role. Rich and dense, with impressive depth, this is a darkly fruited Cabernet that has that rare combination of power and elegance. Notes of ripe cassis and black fruits dominate, with a touch of wood spice and ample tannin for the long haul, though drinking exceptionally well at this young stage. A Platinum Award winner at the 2019 Sommelier Challenge International Wine & Spirits Competition.
