96 points ""A seductive style that's openly fruity, showing supple plum and black cherry notes, with floral scents and spices, turning creamy and gaining a mocha-espresso-vanilla scent that's enticing. Finishes with a smooth texture, fine-grained tannins and then another burst of fruit." Top 100 of 2013"

98 points ""The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Special Selection exhibits an opaque purple color, slightly more toasty oak in the aromatics, and explosive richness on the attack, mid-palate and length. The nose is slightly more restrained than in the regular bottling, but there is no doubting the Special Selection is a cut or two above the Napa bottling when it hits the palate. Extraordinary purity of fruit, creme de cassis, licorice and incense all emerge from this full-bodied, iconic classic. It can be enjoyed now and over the next 25+ years."" Best 2014-2025

It's based on a mic of owned and leased vineyards in eight Napa sub AVAs, 75 percent in the valley, the balance on hillsides or higher into the mountains. New French oak comes across in scents of espresso-roast coffee and cedar, while the fruit has blue black depths of plum skin. it's tight and relatively austere for this style of Napa Valley cabernet, needing bottle age to show its best.""
