#27 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2008
Aging beautifully, this is smooth, rich and layered, with tannins that offer substance and traction around the core of earth- and mineral-laced dark berry, cedar, tobacco and sage. Ends a bit grippy from tannins, but won't disappoint. Best soon. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot.—2005 California Cabernet blind retrospective (September 2015).
