4 stars "Color: deep; Acidity: supple; Body: full-bodied; Overall: elegant; What an amazing wine. Nose of earth, dark fruit, leather - mouth pleasing, smooth, years allowed it to mellow and finish that goes on and on. Fantastic, fantastic wine. And was probably peaking. Love it."

"A gorgeous, ripe nose of morello cherry, raspberry and a touch of pine. Thick saturated tannins with wonderful balance and poise. Good acidity, great depth with well-integrated oak that does not dominate the wine. Wonderful"

95 points "95 Wine Spectator This builds and builds and builds on the palate. Gorgeous aromas of ripe berries, meat and spices. Full-bodied, with polished, well-integrated tannins and a long, long finish. Give it time. 5,000 cases made. "
