Tasted in London at the London Wine Trade Fair 2005. This wine is made in very limited production and represents decent value in my opinion. I tasted it next to superstars such as Mondovi Cab Sauv. Reserve 2000, Heitz Cab Sauv. 1999, and Cain Five 2001, and the Darioush 2002 showed remarkably well. An opulent wine of clear character and class.

A sweet, highly extracted, classic California red, of high alcohol and good tannic structure. Will only get better with a few years in the bottle and will last more than ten.
