94 points "Color: dark; Nose: complex; Pure Oakville luxury juice, this wine grows at the Swanson estate, where it's crafted by winemaker Chris Phelps. Plush cherry and wild blueberry flavors give it a polished feel, while the savory details of the fine-grained tannin add dimension and energy. This has a long life ahead." 92 points WIne Enthusiast: "Swanson has a great track record with this wine, which is always in need of time on release. The 2005 shows classic Napa structure, with hard but near-perfect tannins and lush, oak-sweetened black currant, cherry and dark chocolate flavors. Brilliant, but will benefit from a good three or four years in the cellar. Should evolve well beyond 2012." (12/08) 90 points Wine Spectator: "Delivers subtle, complex black cherry, currant, spice and cedary oak notes that are well-structured and well-proportioned, gaining depth and richness and ending with a nice touch of toasty oak. Best from 2011 through 2017." "

"Tight and austere, with a mix of pebble, currant, spice, anise and herbal notes that are compact and firm on the finish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Merlot. Drink now through 2010. 2,764 cases made." Best 2007-2010
