93 points "(78% cabernet sauvignon, 13% cabernet franc and 9% petit verdot): Good deep ruby. High-pitched aromas of crushed blackberry and violet. Wonderfully pure, sweet dark berry and chocolate flavors show superb delineation and verve. Chewier and more powerful than the 2009 version, finishing with huge, broad, toothcoating tannins and lively blue fruit flavors. This bottling features the highest percentage of cabernet sauvignon to date: winemaker Andy Smith considers 2010 to be an outstanding vintage for this variety. 93-96 points"

95 points ""Equally prodigious are the 800 cases of 2006 LMV Salon Proprietary Red, a blend of 62% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Cabernet Franc, and the rest the other three Bordeaux varietals (Merlot, Malbec, and Petit Verdot). Spicy, chocolaty espresso roast notes intermixed with spring flowers and a hint of bay leaf are followed by a full-bodied wine with oodles of black currant and cherry fruit. The sweetness of the tannins, the breadth and savory mouthfeel, as well as the layered texture, make for an exceptional glass of sumptuous wine. It should drink nicely for 15+ years."" Best 2013-2022
