  • From Patterson's Beverage Journal: "These are my favorites...

    … from the more than 500 wines I taste each month. 2001 Profile: Lush and plummy with blackberry notes and sweet oak; long, round and balanced.” —Anthony Dias Blue [94 POINTS]

  • FROM WINE ENTHUSIAST: "An amazingly delicious and complex wine.

    … Dark and rich, filled with black currant, cocoa and new oak flavors and lush, sweet tannins. Finishes with a scour of fresh acidity. Made from some of Napa’s greatest vineyards, such as To-Kalon and Georges III, this is a wine with a great future. —Tasting Panel [93 POINTS]

  • From Wine Investor Buyer's Guide: "An outstanding Meritage blend.

    … Since fewer than 900 cases were produced, you have to act quickly to ensure that your cellar fits the profile or vice versa. Perfect balance with great depth and silky texture. There are layers upon layers of aromatic flavor. Plums, cassis, mocha, and olives are all detectable and delectable.”  —Jonathan Levine [FOUR STARS]
