  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 91

    ($115) Saturated ruby-red. Roasted plum, mocha and chocolate liqueur on the inviting nose. Sweet and lush in the mouth, with very ripe, mellow flavors of currant, cherry, tar and melting chocolate. This has the fat of a topnotch merlot. Long finish features substantial but thoroughly sweet tannins.

  • Wine Spectator | Rating: 93

    Smooth, rich and creamy, this is a plush and inviting wine with generous black cherry and blackberry fruit that's ripe and layered, offering depth and concentration and finishing with a warm chocolate aftertaste. Drink now through 2012. 760 cases made.

  • Wine Advocate | Rating: 95

    Wow! Was I blown away by this wine, which I do not remember ever rating so highly. This is an opaque purple-colored, seriously endowed Cabernet displaying an extraordinary bouquet of spring flowers, lead pencil shavings, creme de cassis and subtle oak. Made from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, it possesses sweet tannins, beautiful integration of wood, tannin, acidity and alcohol, and a full-bodied, powerful yet elegant personality. This youthful 2001 will not hit its peak for another 4-5 years, and should keep for two decades thereafter.

  • Hartwell's Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Sauvignon Blanc vines are ideally situated in the Stags Leap District of Napa, on the steep slope of a dormant volcano. They enjoy all the factors for winegrowing success: warm days, cool nights, good drainage, low yields, and the only granite in Stags Leap. Winemakers Benoit Touquette, trained at the University of Bordeaux, and Andy Erickson, trained at UC Davis, team up with consulting winemaker Michel Rolland to produce single varietal bottlings of distinction.
