90 points "Combines ripe, intense, firmly tannic Cabernet fruit with a sense of elegance and finesse. Dark colored, with rich, earthy currant, anise, cedar and pencil lead. Shows plenty of stuffing, with concentrated flavors and ample tannins for cellaring. Best from 2004 through 2012. 220 cases made." Best 2004-2012

92 points "11/15/2002: Plush-textured, with ripe, firm tannins and plenty of classy blackberry, black cherry, cassis, vanilla, spice, herb and cinnamon notes. The wine is complex, yet disarmingly easy to enjoy now. Should do well in the cellar, too."
