" 95 points Robert Parker: "This blockbuster Cabernet Sauvignon remains closed, with more promise than current appeal. The saturated purple color displays no amber or signs of evolution at the edge. The nose reluctantly offers up pure aromas of black fruits, minerals, and licorice. Extremely full-bodied, with layers of rich, glycerin-dominated, sweet, jammy fruit buttressed by zesty acidity and abundant tannin, this large-scaled, surprisingly well-proportioned and balanced Cabernet Sauvignon requires another 5-8 years of cellaring. It is a candidate for 20-30+ years of longevity. So what's new?" 95 points and a Cellar Selection from the Wine Spectator: "Incredibly intense Cabernet fruit balanced with a strong shot of firm oak and tannin, deep and delicious beautifully knit. For all the richness, it has plenty of finesse, along with impressive cherry, berry currant and chocolate flavors.""
