95 points "Robert M. Parker, Jr. writes in his recent review of the best of northern California: “I realize this is not a North Coast offering, but it’s such a sensational, impeccably high quality cuvee it merited inclusion in this report. One of the finest Bordeaux blends (93% Cabernet Sauvignon and 7% Merlot and Cabernet Franc) I have ever tasted from Paso Robles, it offers glorious aromas of camphor, creme de cassis, smoke, and subtle oak. Voluptuously rich and full-bodied with beautiful purity as well as a sense of elegance, definition, and harmony, this gorgeously proportioned, rich proprietary red should drink well for a decade or more. Kudos to the folks at Justin for a brilliant achievement.” —WA 95 "
