3.5 stars "Still young and oaky with vanilla aromas on the nose. On the palate, very smooth with berry fruit notes. Well balanced finish. A food friendly wine."

92 points "The dense ruby/purple-colored 2002 Optimus Estate, an innovative blend of 50% Syrah, 46% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 4% Zinfandel, offers a complex bouquet of briery fruit interwoven with cherries, creme de cassis, licorice, truffles, and smoke. Ripe, with crisp acidity, medium to full body, abundant concentration, and a savory, round mouthfeel, this lovely red should drink well for a decade. " Best 2005-2015
