Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 150

The perplexing 2000 Cinq Cepages Proprietary Red (a blend of 76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot, 9% Cabernet Franc, 3% Malbec, and 2% Petit Verdot) reveals mid-ninety point aromatics ... truly a splendid bouquet that reminded me of a high-class Bordeaux St.-Emilion (dried herbs, tobacco smoke, licorice, chocolate, black currants, and cherries). However, the stunning aromas do not follow through in the mouth. This medium-bodied, dark ruby/purple-tinged 2000 starts off sweet and authoritatively on the palate, but the finish is narrow and tannic. It is typical of the 2000 vintage, which can deliver considerable fragrance, but often lacks texture and reveals a narrow, constricted aftertaste. Drink this 2000 now or cellar it for a decade.

Wine Spectator Author: James Laube

Smooth and harmonious, with ripe, rich, supple plum and blackberry fruit, shaded by cedar, anise, black cherry and spice attributes. Firms up and flexes its tannic strength on the finish. Very well-made. 15,500 cases made.

Disappointed, couldn't hold itself next to the 2000 bordeaux (Louviere and Couspaude)

Improved with work. Blackberry and black cherry fruit, anise, licorice, nice texture. Something a bit earthy about it too.
