Reviews & Scores
One of the best vintages of the vertical, the fruit feels well defined and bright, the fleshy berry expression is certainly Californian, with notes of coffee bean and smoke, but it is measured and balanced, and comes through as a depth of flavor that is pretty irresistable. One to sink into. 3% Malbec completes the blend. 37 days skin contact, low crop, sunny and warm summer. 
DC97September 2019
Bright full ruby-red. Pungent black raspberry, leather, game, chocolate, espresso, pepper and fresh herbs. Juicy, bright and very concentrated, with crunchy currant, tobacco and dark chocolate flavors supported and amplified by a firm spine of acidity. Long on personality. Finishes with dusty tannins and excellent length.
ST92June 2000
This is one of the finest Opus Ones to date, offering a dark ruby/purple color, as well as a striking, intense bouquet of sweet licorice intermixed with blackberries, cassis, plums, and saddle leather. This seamless, full-bodied wine is more velvety-textured, opulent, and succulent than past vintages. The mid-palate is expansive and chewy. The long finish is filled with glycerin, ripe fruit, and sweet tannin.
