Wine AdvocateThis gorgeous Cabernet Sauvignon from a vineyard above Lake Hennessey exhibits scents of creme de cassis, spring flowers, ink, graphite, plums and licorice. The superb aromatics are followed by a full-bodied, opulent wine with no hard edges. Still in mid-adolescence, this brilliant 2002 is an authoritative example of this great vintage for Napa Valley Cabernet. It should hit its peak in 3-5 years and last for 20-25 years thereafter.

Wine SpectatorA pure display of ripe, racy wild berry, black cherry and raspberry fruit that at times veers into Zinfandel berry territory. Intense and tannic, it's not what I've come to expect from this producer. Nonetheless, it's tasty and full of vivid flavors. Best from 2006 through 2011.
