#77, Top 100 Wines of the Year and Included on the 10 Bold New world Cabernets Sauvignons
"This neutral French oak-aged blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot is a side project from the folks at Andrew Will. Its aromas draw you into the glass, evoking savory herbs, cherry, tangerine peel, fresh tobacco, green pepper and black olive. The palate brings pure, textured, seamless fruit and savory flavors that sail into the distance." 91 Points
- Sean Sullivan, Wine Enthusiast
"Offering up generous aromas of briary red and black fruit, dried herbs and cigar wrapper, the 2016 Involuntary Commitment Red Wine is full-bodied, ample and open-knit, with low acidity and a juicy core of fruit. Keenly priced and adapted to near-term consumption, drink it in the next 1 to 3 years to profit from its boisterous fruit." 89 Points
- William Kelley, Wine Advocate
"Sports a deep ruby color as well as juicy red berry fruits, exotic flowers, blood orange, and violets. With medium-bodied richness, a juicy, lively style, fine tannin, and a clean finish, it's a delicious charmer to drink over the coming 3-6 years." 89 Points

The wine offers great depth of flavor at a price that is perfect for football viewing. You can sense the black fruits, tobacco, and earthy aroma, yet on the palate it has more currants and plums. This wine was designed to “come and take you away!
- Dan McCarthy, McCarthy and Schiering Wine Merchants
I’ll begin by saying this might be the highest-QPR Washington wine we offer in 2017… . It’s classy as hell, about as good a sub-$20 Washington red as my toddler-addled brain can remember.
- Paul Ziratelli, Full Pull Wines
Killer stuff any way you look at it and at this price, a contender for Washington value of the year.
