Wine AdvocateThe exceptional 1996 Shiraz/Cabernet Sauvignon Mountain Blue (90% Shiraz and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon) exhibits a thick-looking opaque purple color. The nose reveals toasty vanilla scents intermixed with blackberry jam and creme de cassis. Low acidity, and a rich, glycerin-imbued, lush texture are hedonistic and alluring. This jammy, thick, juicy, succulent wine should drink well for 7-8 years.

Robert Parker, April 1999

Wine SpectatorBright, crisp and delicious for its focused berry, currant and herb flavors. Echoes sage and dusky spice on the racy finish.

Harvey Steiman, June 30, 1999
