Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - 95 pts, Wine House - 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. - Aug 1994


Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar - 93 pts, Wine House - Medium, amber-edged red. Ripe, chocolatey aromas of plum, currant, leather and cedar claret-like, complex and just about mature. Juicy, deep and subtly rich but not especially fleshy. Intensely flavored and penetrating, with surprising acidity for the year. Stylish and long on the aftertaste. A warm year in a cool region, notes Draper. - Sep/Oct 2000
