  • Robert Parker's Wine Advocate opined: "... it deftly marries power and elegance in a seamless wine that should see its 20th birthday in peak form." Wine Enthusiast threw around, "Huge, dense and seemingly endless...", while the Spectator rang in with, "savory", "velvety" and "rolls along unimpeded." Winemaker Charles Smith just refers to his own wines as "kick ass."
