Wine Spectator, 94 points: Beautifully crafted, with tightly focused, refined aromas and flavors of cherry, currant, cedar and toast, firmly supported with soft tannins; turns pretty and ripe on the finish. With its concentration, a safe bet to...
Wine Spectator, 91 points: Big and stiffly tannic, but well fleshed out with sweet currant, cedar and vanilla flavors. Long finish and chewy texture bodes very well for aging.
Wine Spectator, 93 points: Remarkably complex with rich concentrated tannic currant spice and anise flavors wrapped in smoky cedary oak that gets tastier with every sip. It's best to wait until this one can fully develop in 1997 or '98.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, 91 points: The 1986 displays a perfume of toasty smoky new oak and blackcurrants has impressive extract and a wonderful purity of currant fruit that reminded me of the classic Cabernets made by the tiny Napa Valley winery of...
Decanter, 90 points: Smoky aromas with a touch of ash; Cabernet Sauvignon is taking over. Complex but subtle; needs time in the glass. Soft cloves and truffle. Probably 40% new oak, still fairly unusual in the 1980s.
Vinous, 93 points: Light bright, youthful red to the rim. Enticing, racy aromas of red currant, tea leaf, tar and coffee. Big and broad on the palate, with open-knit yet still-precise flavors of red berries and minerals complicated by a...
Wine Spectator, 95 points: This remains a remarkably complex and flavorful wine but now it's elegant and refined as well with polished tannins. Classic Caymus in that it stretches the flavors with a range that goes from herb and tea to ripe plum...
Wine Spectator, 90 points: Like a young Port a powerful and concentrated wine for long-term aging. Very deep ruby color with rich spicy vanilla aromas full body and lots of fruit flavors; tannic but well integrated with a long finish. Try in 1995. ...
Wine Spectator, 95 points: A marvelous Lafleur, full-bodied, with supple tannins, offering lovely mineral, earth and black fruit character. Smooth and ripe from start to finish.--Château Lafleur vertical. Drink now through 2020.

I purchased a lot from JJB when I previously lived in California... Always better prices and they'd hold bottles until I put together cases to ship. Great customer service. I moved to Italy 4 years ago and was out of the loop, but I'm back and happy to go with JJ!
