The flavors of currants cherries vanilla and sweet oak are only part of it. It is so dry so richly structured in tannins and acids so pure through the long spicy finish that it easily deserves its high score. Will age well for up to a decade." (02/09) One of the San Francisco Chronicle's Top 100 Wines of 2008: "Cathy Corison coaxed a smoky anise-tinged effort from the 2005 vintage. Balanced fresh and ripe with sweet black fruit plum graphite and a big grippy finish very much in line with her more structure firmly tannin and ageworthy approach." (12/08) From Decanter Magazine: "Warm spicy berry nose. Fine plum jam spicy notes. Plenty of weight. Firm crisp tannins. Nice length." And according to Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine: "Nicely proportioned and remarkably polished for such a young Cabernet this well-balanced bottling achieves a fine sense of refinement and steps away from the crowd of very ripe oak-driven wines. Very long on the palate and showing a spine of fine-grained tannins it will unfold and deepen over another half-dozen years or more of cellaring even though will be altogether drinkable in the near to mid-term."
