94 points "Hong Kong-born Stanley Cheng purchased 127 acres in Napa Valley and with the assistance of winemaking consultant Mark Herold, he produces just less than 500 cases of 100% Cabernet Sauvignon aged 19-20 months in Taransaud. (They also make a Chardonnay and Syrah, but they have been unwilling to show those wines to me.) The 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon is a bigger, better, more complete wine this year than it was showing last year. Dense ruby/purple in color with notes of melted licorice, pain grille, blackberry, and smoke, this full-bodied wine has superb intensity, ripe tannin, good acidity, and a long, structured, but powerful and concentrated finish. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2025." Best 2011-2025
