    95 pts Wine Spectator, 93 pts International Wine Cellar. WS review: Has gained with age; still big, bold, ripe and expressive, with tiers of juicy plum, blackberry, chocolate brownie and espresso, yet for all its girth it's elegant and graceful, ending with a touch of kirsch. 2001 California Cabernet blind retrospective (June 2011).
