Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: 93 points

(a Bordeaux blend based on 81% cabernet sauvignon): Deep ruby-red. Black cherry and licorice on the discreet, pure nose. Densely packed , spicy and rich not especially broad on the palate but boasts superb concentration for the vintage and a sappy impression of dry extract. The black cherry and dark berry flavors are lifted by a floral element. Serious, youthfully tough tannins will require at least five years of cellaring.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: 90-92 points

The 2011 Proprietary Red Paradise Hills Vineyard (81.1% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16.5% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot) exhibits a deep ruby/purple color along with sweet aromas of black currants, licorice, tobacco leaf and dusty, loamy soil notes. Medium-bodied and rich, it should drink well early on and last for 10-12 years.
