International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 156

(cabernet sauvignon with 8% merlot, 6% cabenet franc, 3% petit verdot and 1% malbec): Good deep ruby-red. Complex nose melds briary black raspberry, black cherry, licorice, bitter chocolate and wild herbs. Concentrated, lush and intense, with very good purity to the nicely delineated dark fruit, spice and floral flavors. A hint of wild herbs adds complexity. The serious, broad tannins are sweeter than those of the merlot and arrive late. Winemaker Erin Green notes that the 2008 reds have some light herbal qualities, "but nothing like the 2005s or 2003s, which were both more complex after five years in the bottle."

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 192

The 2008 Proprietary Red Wine blend (essentially a Cabernet Sauvignon-dominated wine with Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, and Malbec blended in) has a more opaque/purple color. With more graphite, blueberry and lilac notes, sweet tannin, medium to full body, and an elegant, gracious feel, it is more restrained than previous examples but has no shortage of richness and concentration. It looks to be a beauty in a Bordeaux style, with sweet tannins but loads of fruit ' unmistakably California but French in structure. Drink it over the next 15+ years.

Casis, burnt toast, vanilla, black cherry, with a merlot backbone I would say. Well made, throwing some sediment, and needs decanting. Could fool some as a pomerol.

Frutado, lembrando muito fruta vermelha em compota, quase doce. Notas fortes de madeira. Apesar de novo, taninos e acidez bem equilibrados. Típico do Napa, um pouco rústico, mas muito bom.

Good but not great. Was expecting more given the price.
