The Wine Advocate #228, October 2018 (93 points) – Lisa Perrotti-Brown
The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon The Anchor is deep purple-black colored and a little closed to start, giving way to a core of black plums, warm black cherries and cassis with hints of pencil lead, sautéed herbs and cedar chest. Big, concentrated and jam-packed with bold, black fruit, it has a firm frame of chewy tannins and long earth-laced finish.

Vinous Media, December 2018 (92 points) – Antonio Galloni
An addition to the range, the 2016 The Anchor is a tasty wine meant to deliver terrific quality at a reasonable price. The 2016 certainly achieves that goal. Ripe dark cherry, plum, cedar, smoke and tobacco add nuance to this pliant, open-knit wine.
