92 points Wine Enthusiast

 Here’s a rich, solid Cab from a good winery with a proven track record. Made in the Bordeaux style, with 72% Cabernet Sauvignon, 26% Merlot and 2% Cabernet Franc, it’s got ripe black-currant and plum aromas and flavors and a solid dose of toasty new French oak. Very balanced and complex. The tannins are soft enough to drink it tonight, but it can also age, if you want.  (12/2000)

91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Bright ruby. Oaky aromas of black fruits, dark chocolate and mint. Very ripe, thick and rich; lovely sweetness and breadth of texture. Grew lusher as it opened in the glass. Enticing flavor of black raspberry. Finishes very long, with big, ripe tannins. A lovely example of the vintage. (ST)  (12/2000)

Wine Spectator

 Mature and drinking well, with complex plum, earth, anise, currant and savory herb flavors and cedary oak, tilting toward dry, grainy tannins on the aftertaste.--Blind 1997/2007 California Cabernet retrospective (January 2017). Drink now. (JL, Web Only-2017)
