93 points "Bright red-ruby. Reticent but complex cabernet aromas of dark berries and minerals. Sweet, dense and sappy; not particularly showy today but boasts outstanding energy to its currant and mineral flavors. Most impressive today on the superb resounding finish, which features substantial smooth tannins and outstanding lift. (93-95)."

94 points "This is a dark, sharply focused, richly flavored wine, brimming with pure cherry, currant, mineral, sage and spice. Has the tannic strength to age. Being mostly Cabernet, this contrasts nicely with Dalla Valle's Maya, a blend that's about 50 percent Franc. Best from 2001 through 2008. 2,200 cases made. (JL)" Best 2001-2008
