95 points Robert Parker: "Rich with surprisingly soft tannin, this dense plum/ruby/purple-colored 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon exhibits lots of briary mountain fruit, blackberries, blueberries and cassis, outstanding purity, full-bodied power and nicely integrated tannin. There is no evidence of toasty oak to be found in this beauty from Randy Dunn. Drink it now or cellar it for 15+ years. It finished at 13.8% natural alcohol. (Jun 2013)"

94 points James Suckling: "Fabulous aromas of blackberries, blueberries, and black licorice. Full body, firm and juicy with lots of savory, salty character. A smoky, spicy and delicious wine. Just drinking well now. Wonderful red. (5/15/14)"

93 points Stephen Tanzer (International Wine Cellar): "Bright ruby. Very tight and high-pitched on the nose, hinting at cassis, minerals and graphite.Then lush, sweet and impressively concentrated, with densely packed flavors of kirsch, currant and minerals and noteworthy inner-palate energy. Finer-grained than the Napa bottling, with better integration of acids and tannins. Finishes sappy and very long, with a chewy, palate-staining texture.This has delivered on the promise it showed from barrel. (Jan/Feb 2007)"

Stephen Brook (The Finest Wines of California): "Reserved, dense, plummy nose. Very rich and full-bodied, tannic but not tough, mouth-filling and opulent. Unusually accessible, but less persistent than some other vintages. (Tasted in 2007-09)."
