91 Points | International Wine Cellar , May/June 2013

(the first commercial release of this classic second wine was 2008, according to winemaker Celia Welch, who added that 2007 was the last year this estate sold any of its fruit, although it continues to sell bulk wine; made from "younger vines and leftover pieces"):  Bright medium ruby.  Classic Rutherford cabernet aromas and flavors of currant, chocolate, mocha and fresh herbs, plus complex soil nuances and a note of graphite minerality.  Sweet, succulent and quite approachable, with a minty note perking up the middle palate.  Nicely dense wine with a firm spine of slightly dusty tannins.  An excellent second wine and a very nice introduction to these extraordinary vineyards at a comparatively gentle price.
