Deep and spicy on the nose with hints of allspice, white pepper, vitamins, vanilla, toast and old chicken bouillon cube all blending for an intriguing, if not totally appealing bouquet. Up front this offer a nice bit of sweet, bright red fruit but the mid-palate becomes dominated by the acidity as it turns harsh and hollow which becomes unrelenting on the moderately long finish. With air this fleshes out a bit as the fruit gains traction and begins to cover the mid-palate but the finish remains raw and aggressive. I’ve had better bottles of this and can only assume that this has seen less than ideal storage over the years. 86pts

Wonderful balance and orchestration of flavor. Ripe, rich currant, black cherry, plum and berry flavors are vivid and well-defined. Hints of olive, cedar, sage and anise fill out a very complex and sophisticated finish.--'81/'91 California Cabernet r... Wine Spectator.
