92 "Reminiscent of the old Martini Cabs from Napa Valley. Just oozes the juciest, sweetest cassis, and drinks velvety-soft even in youth, with beautifully dry, dusty tannins."--Wine Enthusiast 

 

91 "High elevation vines build a structural stamina into this cabernet. The cherry plum scents and generous, taut flavors may not be long lasting, but you can feel the shape of the fruit just as tannins come to cut it off. Firm, dry and austere, this risks its luscious middle for an almost zinny spice in the end. Enjoyable now, it will gain length and breadth with age." --Wine & Spirits Magazine
