We have the last case.
“Keyed on a rich mix of black cherries, loam and cola in its nicely extracted aromas and following suit in the mouth, Pine & Stone’s proprietary red blend is a moderately full-bodied offering whose Merlot complement comes through loud and clear. It tips in the direction of ripeness without tipping too far, and it keeps tannin comfortably in check. Among its maker’s three wines, it will be the first to reach full maturity and should be in fine drinking form some three to five years hence.” — The Connoisseurs’ Guide to California Wine, August 2017.

92 points, “Made from 59% Cabernet Sauvignon, 36% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc, much of the fruit from the Garvey Home Ranch, this wine impresses with its thick, rich red and black berry, tobacco and dusty gravel flavors. Well-integrated, it shows restraint without sacrificing body, its nuances developing slowly in the glass.” The Wine Enthusiast, August 2017.
