94 points ""I had to double-check the price on this briliant wine because it's much less than other Napa Cabs. It's a fat, sweet, fleshy wine, instantly appealing for its delicious blackberry, blackstrap molasses, cherry, violet and sweet oak flavours, yet it's a cellar guarantee. The tannins are finely ground and wonderfully ripe, giving the wine a firm lushness that lastst through a long, satisfying finish. Should be easy to find, with 10,300 cases produced. Editor's Choice." (Steve Heimoff — Wine Enthusiast — December 2006)"

88 points "Ripe, smooth and polished, with pretty plum, black cherry, wild berry and spicy notes that are focused and lively through the finish. Drink now through 2007. 17,000 cases made. –JL WS - Feb 28, 2001" Best -2007

"1996 Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon Description Press Acclaim ORIGIN: Expressing cherry-berry fruit, herbs and the noted “Rutherford Dust” characteristics from this legendary Napa Valley appellation, this blend consists of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot, 3% Petit Verdot, and 2% Cabernet Franc. VINEYARD: Grapes were hand harvested in late September and early October 1996 from Rutherford Ridge, Hidden Canyon and Crimson Creek vineyards, our three narrow spaced estate vineyards. WINEMAKING: After hand picking, grapes underwent extended maceration for 15 to 25 days. This contact with the skins develops the expansive mouthfeel and tannin structure of the wine. Aged in new, one, and two-vintage-old French oak barrels for 17 to 18 months, this wine was not fined and was bottled in July 1998. TASTING NOTES: Bigger and riper than previous vintages, this Cabernet Sauvignon is deep and dark with intense flavors of cassis and raspberry mixing with warm toasty aromas. Remarkably complex, the long finish has great depth and length. Enjoy now or cellar for five to seven years. This vintage produced 10,600 (750ml) cases, in addition to 375ml and 3.0L formats.
