94 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 2013
(100% cabernet sauvignon; from vineyards in Coombsville and Oakville): Good bright ruby. Highly aromatic nose and palate combine redcurrant, pepper, mocha and tobacco leaf. Bright and complex in the mouth, with terrific concentration and sweetness to the tactile, varietally accurate flavors. Offers an outstanding combination of claret-like Coombsville reserve and Oakville power. And wonderfully round on the long, sweet back end. (Incidentally, there will be no La Magdalena in 2010: that fruit, from the Summit Block at Oakville Ranch in the eastern hills above Oakville, went into Leviathan, another venture of Andy Erickson and his wife, viticulturalist Annie Favia.)
