Very densely tannic wine the dry character of the wine a major element. This dryness gives the wine power without the fruit at this stage. It does have the weight for the future. - R.V. Wine Enthusiast.

83% Cabernet Sauvignon and 17% Merlot were blended to produce a deep colored wine that expresses toasty oak cassis coffee jammy dark berries tobacco and olive tapenade aromas that pair well with the full-bodied bite of concentrated Cabernet Sauvignon spice and cassis. Along with the stellar 2005 this is the best vintage of this wine since the outstanding 2000. Jeff Leve.

This is dense but silky around the edges with crushed plum and black currant fruit lined with roasted vanilla bean tobacco and loam notes. Everything hangs solidly through the finish lined with finely beaded acidity and leaving an echo of singed anise. Best from 2015 through 2028. -JM Wine Spectator.

Blackberry and licorice aromas with full body very fine tannins and a long finish. Very silky. So much for jammy wines in 2003. Very fresh and refined. Best after 2008. 15 555 cases made. Wine Spectator.

Medium red-ruby. Sappy aroma of spiced cherry plus a suggestion of damp earth. Sweet and lush with just enough acidity to give life to the very ripe flavors... Stephen Tanzers IWC.
