92 points "The 2000 Ode to Picasso (a 375-case blend of 53% Cabernet Sauvignon, 27% Merlot, and 20% Syrah) is a blockbuster, exotic, hedonistic turn-on offering glorious levels of fruit, glycerin, and explosive aromatics. It should be delicious young yet last for 10-15 years." Best 2002-2017

90 points "Bright ruby-red. Slightly high-toned aromas of crushed blackberry, violet, tar and spices. Juicy, intense and bright, with black fruit, tar and bitter chocolate flavors nicely framed by fresh acids. At once chewy and juicy, with good density and cut. Cool suggestion of medicinal licorice. Finishes with torrefaction notes of tar and oak char. "
