International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 114

Bright ruby-red. Cassis, bitter chocolate and strong oak tones on the nose. Intensely flavored and juicy, with fairly intense flavors of currant, licorice, chocolatey oak and herbs. Firm acids frame the wine and give it style. Finishes with firm, toothdusting tannins and repeating notes of oak and herbs.

Relatively light colour for such a young California Cab ? but that?s still pretty deep crimson! Quite intense ? the terroir effect is struggling to rise above the alcohol! A slight mineral note. Hint of almonds. Sweet and very flattering. Bit of dark chocolate. Tannins pretty well hidden under all that ripe fruit with quite a bit of acidity. A broad mouthful of fruit spreads across the palate. Bit like a slinky, that spiral than ?slinks? down the stairs? 14.8%

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 195

A very strong showing for this wine, which is the quintessential Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon, with loads of earthy soil undertones intermixed with sweet kirsch and black currant fruit. Some underbrush notes interwoven with forest floor and black currants hit the palate with resounding authority, yet retain their elegance and finesse in this medium to full-bodied wine, which is approaching full maturity. It should continue to drink well for another 15 or more years.

Wine Spectator Author: James Laube

A wonderful orchestration of ripe fruit. Smooth, rich and harmonious, with layers of plum, wild berry, blackberry, black olive and spice. Tightly focused, with a fleshy texture, layers of complexity and depth and a long, persistent finish that keeps you coming back for another sip. 2,760 cases made.

Excellent color with high-toned plum and wood in the nose. Enjoyable graham cracker and toasty notes on the finish. Overly tannic and stern. I doubt age will ever ameliorate the excess tannin. Reminds me of a 1980s (1985) Rutherford Cabernet but at its core this wine is a rather pedestrian Napa Valley Cabernet that is grossly overpriced.
