87 Points | International Wine Cellar , May/June 2002
Bright red-ruby. Aromas of redcurrant, bitter cherry, tarry oak and bitter chocolate. Juicy flavors of blackberry, redcurrant and spicy oak, with a slightly dusty note of coffee grounds. Nicely balanced wine with good texture and decent concentration.

Serious Napa Cab!
This is what a great Napa Cab is all about. Full red that seems to just explode.
Big and bold, fine tannins, Great color and legs. This is a fine wine that will meet all your expectations.
BEAUTIFULLY INTEGRATED FINE GRAINED TANNINS
I have never experienced tannin as I have in this wine. It is very full and burley without being harsh; almost has the feel of silt suspended in velvet. The fruit is certainly there but it sits behind the earthy tannin. Really delicious. I would buy it when I see it for less than $60, but not for the $75 that some sell it for.
