94 points "The 2001 Optimus...is a blockbuster. A dense purple color precedes the sumptuous perfume of blueberries, blackberries, acacia flowers, and licorice. The small percentages of Petit Verdot and Zinfandel along with the huge amount of Syrah give this wine much more up-front, accessible aromatic and flavor profiles. Drink this beautiful red now and over the next 10-12 years." Best 2004-2014

4 stars "Aromatic nose with some notes of sugarcane and cinnamon. On the palate, tannins are present with a good layer of fruit and hints of chocolate and iron. Warm finish."
