Jumps out of the glass with aromas of cassis, red currant, maraschino cherry, soy, espresso and vanilla notes. The mouthfeel is round and generous with fully resolved tannins and a backbone of acidity that provides structure to fruit in this now fully mature Napa Valley Cabernet blend.”

92 points, Wine & Spirits (December 1, 2005): “…flavors layer red cherry with herbs and the dark fruit of wild mushrooms…”

92 points, The Wine News (Feb. 1, 2006): “Forward aromas of stewed plum and maraschino cherry…Crisp, racy red fruit…Great potential.”

90 points, Wine Spectator (November 15, 2005): “…firm, ripe, complex fruit with excellent structure…a resemblance to a fine Bordeaux.”

“Highly Recommended,” The Miami Herald (May 19, 2006): “…flavors of raspberries, cherries and coffee; medium body; long finish.”
