98    Robert Parker for Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
“One of the stars of the vintage, this thrilling, opaque purple-colored wine offers up sweet espresso, jus de viande, blackberry, blueberry, flower and chocolate aromas. A fabulous texture, tremendous purity, sensational brightness and authoritative flavor intensity allied to striking complexity and elegance are the signature of this creative blend from the David Abreu vineyards of Thorevilos and Madrona Ranch. Six hundred cases were produced. Give this wine another 3-4 years of cellaring and enjoy it over the following 15+.” (6/2011)

96    James Suckling
“A fabulous nose of iodine, stones, licorice, and dark fruits. Full bodied, with big, velvety tannins and a long, long finish. I love this. So much going on here, and the finish lasts for minutes. This is a symphony.” (2/2011)

94    Wine Spectator
“Aromas of ripe, complex currant, plum and black cherry show a dry, loamy earth edge on the palate. Full-bodied, deep and focused, this is well-structured, with chewy tannins and a long, lingering finish.” (11/2009)

93+    Stephen Tanzer
“Complex but reticent nose hints at minerals, dried herbs, sweet spices, hot gravel and tobacco. Quite closed but very deep on the palate, with an exotic spice quality (cardamom?) lifting the powerful dark fruit and menthol flavors. This very broad, classically dry wine reminded me of a top claret from the Medoc-and with its rather powerful tannins it may well age like a Bordeaux. Very unevolved today.” (5/2009)
