Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: 98+ points

Remarkably, the 2001 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon may be even better. Staggeringly pure notes of creme de cassis, violets, licorice and graphite soar from the glass of this inky/purple-colored wine. Composed of 98% Cabernet Sauvignon and 2% Petit Verdot, and tasting like it is 2-3 years old, it is a stunningly pure, rich, full-bodied, prodigious example of high elevation mountain Cabernet Sauvignon that will not reach full maturity for another 5-7 years, and should age beautifully for another two decades or more. It is a magical wine to smell, taste and contemplate.

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: 94 points

($115) Saturated medium ruby. High-pitched nose dominated by black cherry and minerals. Then almost shockingly sweet and creamy in the mouth, like an essence of dark mountain berries and bright minerality. Remarkably pure for a wine at this level of density. Finishes with major but sweet tannins that should carry the wine for 15 or 20 years.
