International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 126

($110; blended with 2% malbec and 1% petit verdot) Deep ruby-red. Aromas of cassis, black cherry, sweet butter and loam. Sweet, lush and sappy, with black cherry and graphite flavors offering very good definition and lift. Offers compelling sweetness and an almost liqueur-like ripeness, but this is more than simply a fruit bomb. Finishes with substantial ripe, broad tannins. "The 2002 version is more muscular and long-aging but the 2003 is flashier," notes Herold.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 162

The 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon (97% Cabernet Sauvignon and 3% Malbec and Petit Verdot) boasts an inky/purple color along with a rich bouquet of creosote, blueberries, blackberries, sweet earth, and smoky, spicy oak. With full body, abundant fruit, glycerin, and sweet tannin, a multilayered mouthfeel, and stunning upside potential, it is accessible enough to be drunk in 2-3 years, or cellared for two decades.

Wine Spectator Author: James Laube

Very complete and harmonious, with rich, extracted yet polished currant, wild berry and blackberry flavors that are supple and focused. Shows plenty of depth and concentration. The tannins need time to settle, but it's all there. 800 cases made.

Very ripe black/blue fruit, alcohol noticable but not too hot, plenty of oak spice without the vanilla...not my cup of tea but well made.
