International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 84

Full ruby color. Sexy oak complements cassis, graphite and smoke aromas. Tightly wrapped on the palate, but clearly more intensely flavored than the last sample. Lovely minerally inner-mouth perfume. Big but unevolved. Finishes quite strong, with firm tannins supported by sheer material. Impressive wine.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 124

The 1996 Reserve Claret is a blend of 63% Merlot, 32% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 5% Petite Verdot (230 cases), it is a gorgeously balanced, super-concentrated yet hauntingly symmetrical wine with copious quantities of black fruits, spicy new oak, minerals, licorice, and roasted herbs. Full-bodied, with a cherry liqueur-like richness to its fruit, this wine has loads of glycerin, fabulous extract, and no hard edges. The velvety finish lasts for 40+ seconds. This is a spectacular wine that must be tasted to be believed.

Wine Spectator Author: James Laube

Smooth, ripe and polished, with a complex array of black cherry, currant, anise, cedar, sage and spice, finishing with a tight focus and a long, concentrated aftertaste. Tannins are firm but supple. A blend of Merlot, Cabernet and Petit Verdot. 222 cases made.
