90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

(from 15-year-old vines planted just south of Dean & Deluca on Highway 29 in St. Helena, plus 5% cabernet from Howell Mountain): Bright ruby. Aromas of crushed blackberry, raspberry and bitter chocolate. Nicely sweet in the mouth, with an attractive chocolatey nuance to the cassis flavor. Finishes with gentle tannins. (ST)  (5/2012)

90 points Wine Spectator

Intense and rustic, this is well-built around a core of red and black fruit, accented by red and black licorice. Powerful, with potent tannins and excellent length. Best from 2014 through 2024. (JL)  (11/2013)
