Wine Spectator Review Rated 93 Aging extremely well, this is rich, sleek and elegant, with a wide range of black cherry, anise, currant, plum and earth notes that offer depthand complexity, finishing in a long aftertaste. Tannins are softening.--California Cabernet retrospective.

Drank in March of 2008 and was definitely ready to be drunk. The fruit had all fallen out and there was a nice dustiness to it with a very nice seemless finish. Comapred it with the 1990 Whitehall Lane reserve and 1990 Chateau Montelena and this was deffiantey the cream of the crop.
