96 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

  Black raspberry, tobacco, espresso, crushed rock and smoky oak aromas and flavors convey a powerful sense of place. Hugely rich and silky, offering a rare combination of inner-mouth perfume and sheer depth of fruit. This is even sweeter than the Roberta's today! Noble, seamless tannins hit the palate late, allowing the wine to open up spectacularly on the finish. A strong candidate for the cabernet of the vintage. Remarkably opulent for a wine with just 13.5% alcohol. (ST)   (5/2014)

96 points Vinous

  As great as the 2010 is, the 2011 isn’t too far behind. Silky, gracious tannins form the backbone in a refined, beautifully balanced Grand Vin long on class. Sweet, perfumed and utterly impeccable throughout, the 2011 is a Grand Vin simply superb. With time in the glass, the 2011 fleshes out beautifully, showing remarkable depth for the year. The 2011 is 89% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot and 1% Cabernet Franc. The higher percentage of Merlot is typical of a lot of blends in 2011. 96+ (AG)   (11/2013)
