Critics

87 Points

Wine Spectator, November 15, 1998

"Firm, tight and tannic, with a leathery streak through the chewy currant, sage and mineral notes. A richly flavored wine that's among the best but, like the best, it turns dry and tannic on the finish, so drink it soon, now through 2004. Contains Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Petit Verdot, Malbec.--1988 California Cabernet retrospective. Drink now through 2004." – JL
