"Classic" 97 points
"This velvety smooth blend of Cabernet and Merlot dazzles with opulent fruit + plush tannins melded together harmoniously for supreme enjoyment! This monumental new release maintains a sense of age-worthy elegance that reminds us of many of the celebrated ‘Second Cult’ Cabernets that sell for double this price. The bouquet boasts captivating aromas of espresso and cocoa that lead to a lavish experience featuring profound layers of sultry, dark black fruit complimented by seamlessly integrated French oak. Intensely satisfying hints of blackberry, baking spices and semi-sweet Godiva chocolate and creamy vanilla linger on the scintillating finish. Thanks to deftly balanced tannins, this relative bargain may be enjoyed tonight (decant ½ hour) and merits a 96+ point rating now, well on the way to a 97 rating over the next decade, peaking 2022 – 2024 depending upon your palate." - California Wine Advisors
