Jeb Dunnuck: 95 Points

Incorporating 10% Petit Verdot and 2% Merlot from a mix of sites in the Columbia Valley, the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Père De Famille reveals a healthy ruby/purple hue to go with beautiful cassis fruits interwoven with notions of dried rose petals, violets, cedary spice, and chalky minerality. Medium to full-bodied, reasonably well concentrated, yet elegant and beautifully balanced, it opens up nicely with time in the glass and will benefit from 2-4 years of bottle age and keep for 20 years.

Wine Enthusiast: 95 Points

This is a wine for the ages. Aromas of thyme, the blackest of cherries, licorice, bay leaf and spice are followed by outright delicious, plump fruit flavors. There's a whole lot of primary fruit, with ample structure to hang it all on, along with plenty of depth and intensity. The finish is near endless. It flat-out impresses, with remarkable intensity.

James Suckling: 95 Points

A firm, polished red with aromas of blackberry, iodine, tobacco leaf, cocoa and cedar. It’s medium-to full-bodied with firm, chewy tannins. Structured, layered and focused. Lots going on, with a long finish. Try from 2023.

Wine Advocate: 94 Points

Acting similarly to the 2015, the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Père de Famille is dense and chewy and will still need additional time for the wine to tell its secrets. Dense, chewy and firm with a tannic edge, the full-bodied wine is seemingly closed down. The wine will no doubt be gorgeous with time, but its generous and lively nature will show better with more time in the cellar. Be patient; this one is a creeper, yet it will outlast the 2015 bottling.
