91 Points - Wine Enthusiast:
"There is deep blackberry but also a savory beef element on the nose of this blend of 61% Cabernet Franc and 39% Merlot, as well as graphite and dried herb touches. The acidity on the sip is nearly searing, and the tannic tension is formidable, ensuring decent age-worthiness. Dary berries are the primary flavors."

Allen Meadows' Burghound:
"A ripe but cool and pretty nose combines notes of various white orchard fruit aromas with those of soft iodine and citrus whiffs. There is good vibrancy and volume to the delicious and attractively textured medium weight flavors that offer reasonable depth and persistence though the balance isn't quite perfect as there is a discernible hint of warmth. Overall this is a good if not special example of the genre that should be a good candidate for early drinking." (Oct 11. 2017)

96 Points - Wine Spectator Magazine:
"There's a subtle power to this graceful Champagne, which boasts a firm, crystalline frame of acidity married to the fine, satinlike mousse and notes of white raspberry, brioche and Earl Grey tea. Seamless through to the long finish of smoke and spice accents, this opens beautifully in the glass. Drink now through 2029." - AN (Web Only - 2017)

92 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"One of the best values I've tasted in a long time, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon from the team at K Vintners was hand-harvested, natively fermented and aged all in French oak. Smoking good notes of cassis, black currants and hints of plum all emerge from this rich, beautifully textured, layered beauty that has solid tannic grip, a silky, elegant texture and a great finish. It has real elegance and finesse and is a dark fruited, unctuous beauty to drink over the coming 3-4 years."

94-96 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The new 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Powerline is a new cuvee based around a vineyard in the southern part of Walla Walla. Harvested from tiny yields and aged in mostly neutral barrels, this full-bodied, luxuriously textured, seamless beauty gives up lots of classic Cabernet notes of creme de cassis, licorice, toasted spice and graphite. There's an undeniably sexy style here, and while it will certainly be approachable on release, my money's on it evolving gracefully for 15-20 years. These latest releases from Charles Smith check in at the top of the pyramid and are flat out incredible wines that I wish every reader could taste. Readers should also check out the new label, Wines of Substance, which are also included in this report. Going forward, the K Vintners label will be for the Rhone inspired blends, and all Bordeaux blends will be moved to the Wines of Substance label." (JD) (6/2016)

90 Points - Wine Enthusiast:
"This is 100% varietal, coming from the winery’s young estate vineyard. The aromas are bright, with notes of dried herb, cherry liqueur, anise, black tea and whole bell pepper, seeming ever so slightly dried out. The flavors are plump but still light on their feet, supported by surprisingly soft tannins for the variety."

98 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Helena Dakota displays more blackberry, blueberry and graphite, with some flowers such as violets, notes of pen ink, a full-bodied, concentrated, succulent and fleshy mouthfeel, and a long, long finish. This is another 25- to 30-year wine." - Robert M. Parker, Jr. (Oct 2016)

93+ Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The 2014s are 30-year wines, even in such a supple, easygoing and charming vintage. The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Helena Montana has an opaque purple color, a beautiful nose of graphite, creosote, incense, blackberry and licorice, and maybe a touch of charcoal and earth. The tannins are soft, and there is enormous fruit as well as a deep, full-bodied mouthfeel and some coffee in the finish. It should drink well for 25-30 years." - Robert M. Parker, Jr. (Oct 2016)

95 Points - James Suckling:
"Almost black-purple color. Dense black fruits aromas, fine oak and elegant dry tannins that are beautifuly integrated in the rich body. The long finish is already graceful thanks to the spot-on balance. Drink now." - (Jul 2017)
