Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: 92-95 points

Saturated deep ruby. Pungent, superripe aromas of cassis, blueberry, minerals and brown spices. A step up in flavor intensity and density. Lovely combination of sweet fruit and solid acid/tannin backbone. Quite firm and extremely long on the aftertaste. An outstanding early showing for this wine.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: 92 points

As for the 1997 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve, this wine seems more subdued than it did last year and might be going through a relatively closed stage. As it sat in the glass, it took on an almost Ducru-Beaucaillou or Leoville-Las Cases St.-Julien-like character, with notes of minerals, cedar wood, black currants, tobacco, and spice.
