K&L Notes

This classic Napa received high praise from the critics upon release, including four stars from Michael Broadbent in his book Vintage Wine: "First tasted in 1991...deep, richly coloured, maturing, attractive fruit; very flavoury but with a rather piquant, acidic finish. Most recently at the Beaulieu Vineyard centenary tasting in London: now medium-deep, still with good, rich 'legs'; fruit low-keyed; good fruit, complete. Very good..." More recently, Wine Advocate's Neil Martin found that it retains some charm: "This has a pure cedar-dominated bouquet with very fine natural freshness and an almost Pauillac-like austerity. Perhaps just a little muffled, but good vigour. The palate is quite tart on the entry, dusty tannins with piquant cherry fruit, leading to a dry tobacco-tinged finish that suggests this is just past its prime. But it has a nonchalance that is still attractive. Tasted December 2010."
