International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 132

($95) Good full ruby. Aromas of blackberry, cassis, licorice, violet and tar, with more new oak showing than in the RBS. Then less pliant and open in the mouth, with considerable power to its dark fruit and mineral flavors. Very chewy young cabernet with a strong backbone for aging, and much less fruit-forward than the RBS. The Clone 4 component is responsible for the wine's muscularity, notes winemaker Thomas Brown, while Clone 6 gives the floral high tones.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 168

Made mostly from Clone 4 with some Clone 6 and Clone 337 (100% from the To-Kalon Vineyard), the 2004 Cabernet Sauvignon is one of the more abundant cuvees (250 cases versus 125 of the RBS, 175 of the CCS, and 100 cases of the Old Sparky). The wine has great purity, richness, and wonderful sweet, smoky, coffee bean, and black currant notes intermixed with some spring flowers and cedar. Very rich, full-bodied, and intense, with an almost Graves-like scorched earth/hot stone sort of character, this wine exhibits superb ripeness, purity, texture, and a multi-dimensional personality. In spite of its accessibility, I would still opt for cellaring it for 2-5 years, and drink it over the following 20-25 years.

Wine Spectator Author: James Laube

Dark, dense and powerful without being heavy or ponderous. Tiers of mocha-laced currant, cassis, blackberry, spice and subtle herb shadings give this tightly focused wine great depth and personality. 250 cases made.

Good to very good. Subtle green flavors, but not unpleasant. Not as plush as Caymus Special, but nice flavor and great nose
