International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 118

($110) Bright red-ruby. Musky, rather exotic aromas of dark raspberry, blackberry, woodsmoke and spicy oak, complicated by a mineral pungency. Fat, sweet and lush, with deep flavors of dark berries and truffle. At once classically dry and pliant, with a fatter texture than most past releases of this wine. The finish features big, broad, dusty tannins; good building length; and a note of Rutherford dust.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 150

The 2001 Proprietary Red Wine (a 9,000-case blend of 86% Cabernet Sauvignon and 14% Merlot) reveals a dark, saturated ruby/purple color as well as a sweet nose of black currants, forest floor, cedar, and tobacco leaf characteristics. Made in an elegant, medium-bodied, Bordeaux-like style with good fruit on the attack, but high tannin in the finish, it is best consumed between 2005-2012.

Wine Spectator Author: James Suckling

Aromas of exotic fruit with cherry, coffee and toasted oak. Full-bodied and verging on jammy, but rich, opulent and fruity. Round tannins. Slightly one-dimensional.
