International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 156

Deep ruby-red. Wonderfully deep aromas of black raspberry, dark cherry, mint, minerals, anise and flowers. Thick on entry, then expands in the middle palate, displaying a suave texture and a weightless impression for such a dense, chewy wine. Boasts a tight, concentrated core of black cherry fruit complicated by dark chocolate, thyme and tarragon. The rising, extremely long finish features black cherry, raspberry and licorice flavors and even, palate-saturating tannins.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 192

After a perfect wine in 2007, I suppose the 2008 is something of a letdown. A hundred percent Cabernet Sauvignon (800 cases), this is still an outstanding wine, with classic graphite, creme de cassis, blueberry and floral notes all well-presented in the perfumed aromatics of this full-bodied, rich, concentrated wine. It has some noticeable tannins to be resolved and is not as seamless and flawless as the monumental 2007. Nevertheless, this is a gorgeous wine to drink over the next 20+ years.

Wine Spectator Author: James Laube

This beautifully crafted red combines power with finesse, serving up layers of dense, intense currant, mineral, mocha, espresso, graphite and cedary oak flavors that are full-throttled and focused, with a deep, churning base of smoky tannins that give this a wonderful finish.

purely domestic wine report Author: Doug Wilder Issue: 1

Shows a sublime and sophisticated nose of red and blue fruits with hints of salted licorice, faint aroma of rose petal and black cherry taffy. The palate is initially a little behind the nose and I revisited the wine the following day which allowed the substantial tannins to resolve to the point where they were revealing more integration with the equally substantial fruit.

Like listening to cool mellow rock 'n' roll. Extraordinary aromas of violets and dark fruits such as blueberries and currants. I can't get over the aromas here. Then it goes to minerals with just a hint of bay leaf. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins with a beautiful softness and beautifulness. I love the balance and harmony to this with bright acidity. I would drink this before the 2007. Just under 1,000 cases of 12 but all sold in threes. Reminds me of Leoville Las Cases but with Napa brightness. Enjoy or hold for a long time.

Extremely concentrated! Tannin almost imperceptable, tons of toasty oak and blackberries, cassis and a touch of spice. Given its weight, this one probably has many years ahead.
