96 points "There are 1,300 cases of the 2004 Cabernet Sauvignon Paradise Hills Vineyard. Boasting delicious fudge-like aromas intermixed with blackberry, coffee bean, and pain grille scents, this super-rich, full-bodied effort displays a Graves-like, volcanic, scorched earth/hot stone element in its flavors. With moderately high tannin, it will benefit from 2-3 years of bottle age, and should drink well over the following two decades. The 2004 looks to be as good as they have made to date, although the 2003 was showing exceptional potential from bottle. The 2004 has an inky/purple color and a big, sweet nose of graphite, scorched earth, plums, licorice, blackberry, and cassis with some tasty, high-quality oak. Extremely opulent, full-bodied, dense, and pure, this is striking Cabernet and one of the densest, richest wines I have tasted from this vintage, a year that has a tendency to be somewhat charming and superficial, but lacks concentration. Because of low acidity, sweet ripeness, and velvety tannin, this wine should be drinkable upon release but hit its stride in 4-5 years and last for two decades. " Best 2009-2028

94 points "Deep ruby color. Blackberry, pepper, mint and tar on the vibrant nose. Lush but dry, with strong acids giving terrific cut and definition to the dark berry and bitter chocolate flavors. But this also offers excellent breadth and palate coverage. Finishes with full tannins that call for at least a few years of additional bottle aging. " Best 2009-2026
