International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 126

($110; 100% cabernet sauvignon, from Pride Mountain Vineyards and Switchback Ridge fruit) Deep ruby. Sexy aromas of blackcurrant, graphite and licorice. Dense, sweet and superconcentrated, with terrific intensity of briary black raspberry flavors. Powerful, long, brooding wine, finishing with toothcoating tannins. This big boy begs to be served with a piece of meat. Not as lush at this stage as the wonderful 2002, but this may live longer.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 162

The top wine here is the classic 2003 Claret, a gorgeously proportioned, opaque purple-colored effort boasting a big, sweet nose of smoky meats, creme de cassis, coffee, and dark plums. Dense and opulent, with superb concentration, full body, high glycerin, decent acidity, and ripe tannin, this a superb mouthful of wine that can be approached now or cellared for 12-15 years.

Wine Spectator Author: James Laube

Remarkably rich, supple and harmonious, with a generous array of spicy currant, blackberry, exotic spice and hazelnut with hints of mocha and chocolate. For all its richness and complexity, this is a delightful wine to drink both now and through the next decade. 700 cases made.

It's a good thing I'm on a big wine because this may be the king of them all! So dark in color you might as well call it black. I get ripe plums on the nose with a spicy peppery element on the nose. The wine is massive in the mouth and coats your teeth with tannins. Ripe chewy dark fruit dominates the taste and has me yearning for a steak. A bit "hot" but otherwise a great wine.
