93 points "93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate Good medium ruby. Clean, classy aromas of cassis, black cherry, violet and graphite minerality. Lush and sweet in the mouth, but with a solid mineral underpinning leavening the impression of fat. This very rich, suave wine finishes with big but round tannins and excellent persistence. Has the structure to age. A superb showing today. (5/ 2012) " Best 2013-2025

99 points "99 points Wine Enthusiast *Top 100 Wines of 2012* There are incredible aromatics on this Cabernet. It’s powerful yet subtle (how can that be?), all about sweet, crushed summer blackberry and pure cassis liqueur. Elaborate oak, in the form of buttered toast, is perfectly in balance, never overshadowing the fruit. The tannins are dry, rich and smooth, defining Napa elegance, grace and beauty. World class, dramatic and just about perfect, this gets better and better as it breathes in the glass. Drink now-2030 (10/ 2012) " Best 2014-2030
