Wine Advocate 92 points - The 2004 Red Table Wine is 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17% Merlot, and the balance Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. It was aged for 27 months in French (60%) and American (40%) oak, 100% new. Purple-colored, the expressive bouquet reveals pain grille, pencil lead, mineral, black currant, and blackberry. The wine glides across the palate smoothly and the flavors are savory. There is enough tannin to support 4-6 years of evolution but the finish is slightly muted and compressed. The wine?s balance suggests that a few years of cellaring should round it out and it should continue to provide pleasure through 2025.  (Jun 2008)

Wine Spectator 91 points - Firm and chewy, with a generous layer of currant and blueberry fruit that runs through the tannins. Shows hints of cedar and sage as the flavors persist on the finish. Needs time to soften, but the elements are there to develop well. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Best after 2009. 4,000 cases made. –HS (Mar 31 2008)
