International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 108

($60; purchased as futures) Red-ruby. Claret-like aromas of black cherry, plum, currant, cocoa powder, loam, smoke and spice. Rich, dense and supple, with depth of flavor for the year and very good vinosity. Rather showy wine, with the characteristic medicinal-but-sweet flavors of Montelena. Tannins spread out nicely on the lingering finish.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 150

The dense purple-colored 2000 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate (97% Cabernet Sauvignon and 3% Cabernet Franc) reveals a sweet perfume of black currants, an expansive, full-bodied palate, surprising elegance as well as accessibility, excellent purity, and a long, layered finish. It is a successful 2000 Cabernet to drink now and over the next 12-15 years.

Wine Spectator Author: James Laube

Notably ripe, plush and fleshy for the vintage, exhibiting ripe blackberry and plum flavors that are concentrated and well-focused, finishing with a nice burst of fruit flavors, with modest tannins. 8,300 cases made.

Nearing maturity, nice stuff for a weak vintage
