93+ Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate (December 2010)

After a perfect wine in 2007, I suppose the 2008 is something of a letdown. A hundred percent Cabernet Sauvignon (800 cases), this is still an outstanding wine, with classic graphite, creme de cassis, blueberry and floral notes all well-presented in the perfumed aromatics of this full-bodied, rich, concentrated wine. It has some noticeable tannins to be resolved and is not as seamless and flawless as the monumental 2007. Nevertheless, this is a gorgeous wine to drink over the next 20+ years.

94+ Stephen Tanzer, Vinous (May 2011)

Deep ruby-red. Wonderfully deep aromas of black raspberry, dark cherry, mint, minerals, anise and flowers. Thick on entry, then expands in the middle palate, displaying a suave texture and a weightless impression for such a dense, chewy wine. Boasts a tight, concentrated core of black cherry fruit complicated by dark chocolate, thyme and tarragon. The rising, extremely long finish features black cherry, raspberry and licorice flavors and even, palate-saturating tannins.
