93 Points | International Wine Cellar , July/August 2002

($100-$129) Full medium ruby. High-pitched, perfumed aromas of dark berries, minerals and violet; very cabernet. Rich, dense and youthful; broad and beefy, with cassis, black cherry and bitter chocolate flavors. Finishes very sweet and long, with fine tannins spreading out impressively to coat the palate. A great showing. Drink now through 2015.

Unbalanced
04/14/2005
by Toper
In the interests of balance, a quality that this wine seems to lack, I have to disagree with these reviews. Admittedly I got this as a bin end from Tanners, so only picked up two bottles, but each revealed (one in '04, one in '05) after a promising nose a somewhat harsh finish.
