Wine Spectator, Winespectator.com, 5/12
(XTANT Napa Valley 2002): 93

"Aging nicely, with pure, youthful plum, cassis, dark berry, floral and black licorice notes. This firms nicely too, as the tannins give it backbone, yet the flavors push through. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Malbec. Best from 2013 through ___." -James Laube

Wine Spectator, Winespectator.com, 10/15/06
(XTANT Napa Valley 2002): 91

"Elegant and stylish, with subdued, understated currant, anise, herb, sage and cedar flavors that unfold gracefully, with a smooth, palate-caressing texture and a long, persistent finish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Malbec. Drink now through 2011. 972 cases made." -James Laube

4/06, (XTANT Napa Valley 2002): 92

"81% Cabernet Sauvignon; 10% Merlot; 9% Malbec. Abundant oak leads the way in the sweet and spicy aromas of this fairly rich and broadly fruity offering, but it is matched step for step by a long line of currants and cherries on the palate and is never allowed to become the wine's singular theme. While a solid and fully fleshed wine, this one also shows some winemaking polish, and we are quite comfortable in predicting that it will be richer and more refined yet if allowed even 3-5 years of additional age."

"A gorgeous blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Malbec. Rich, smooth and ripe with lovely plum and berry fruit; long, fresh and beautifully balanced. A new classic from Napa."
