International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 96

Saturated ruby-purple color. Very sexy aromas of crystallized dark berries, espresso and bitter chocolate. Huge, thick and mouthfilling, with compelling sweetness and spicy character. Boasts great depth of flavor and ripe acids for the vintage. But chewy, ripe tannins hit the palate very late. A remarkable '98.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 141

The opaque purple-colored 1998 Reserve Claret (a blend of 60% Merlot, 35% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 5% Petit Verdot) reveals red and black fruit scents intermixed with vanilla, underbrush, and _mocha/coffee. It is long and opulently-textured, with low acidity, fabulous fruit, a succulent, expansive mid-palate, and a blockbuster, long finish. This is compelling stuff! Drink it over the next 12-15 years. The limited production Reserve cuvee (280 cases) is an expression of California winemaking at its most compelling.

Wine Spectator Author: James Laube

Layers of ripe, supple currant, coffee, toffee, blackberry, black licorice and toasty oak. Finishes with a complex, tightly focused aftertaste. A delicious blend of Merlot, Cabernet and Petit Verdot. 242 cases made.
