89.5 Points Robert Parker
Medium garnet-purple colored, the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon The Siding offers pronounced notes of crushed blackcurrants and blackberries over nuances of bay leaf, pencil shavings and loam. Medium-bodied and elegantly fruited on the palate, it has a harmonious structure of soft, fine-grained tannins and just enough acidity before finishing with great length. Drink it now to 2019+.

95 Points James Halliday
Crimson-purple colour; the perfumed bouquet has a striking lavender note, most obvious when the glass is swirled and held some distance away from your nose; the medium-bodied palate has been fashioned with great dexterity, placing the main emphasis on the blackcurrant fruit, but allowing the tannins to reassure you of the potential of the wine if you decide to cellar some. Drink to 2030.
