Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, November 2011
Tightly wound firm dense and concentrated with a core of dark berry plum roasted herb game meat graphite road tar and lead pencil ending with chewy tannins. Should reward cellaring. Best from 2012 through 2022. 2100 cases... Tightly wound firm dense and concentrated with a core of dark berry plum roasted herb game meat graphite road tar and lead pencil ending with chewy tannins.

Stephen Tanzer - Antonio Galloni's Vinous, July 2015
Bright, dark red. Perfumed aromas of cassis, blackberry, violet and eucalyptus, with a light porty suggestion. Silky, savory and large-scaled if not especially sweet, with the black fruit flavors coming across as smooth... Bright, dark red. Perfumed aromas of cassis, blackberry, violet and eucalyptus, with a light porty suggestion. Silky, savory and large-scaled if not especially sweet, with the black fruit flavors coming across as smooth and a bit soft. Finishes with supple, easygoing tannins but the slowly mounting aftertaste displays surprising length. A late note of menthol contributes to the wine's savory character.

One of the better values in high end Napa Cabernet the 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate is a blend of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot.

One of the better values in high end Napa Cabernet the 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate is a blend of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Elegant Bordeaux-like aromas of berries loamy soil graphite mocha black currants and cedar are followed by a medium-bodied stylish wine with excellent texture underlying floral notes and a long finish. Nearly as French-like as Napa's Dominus wines it should age effortlessly for 10-15 years.
