93 points Wine Enthusiast
Outer quote mark ith a sweet core of cherry fruit, plenty of tobacco and coffee nuances and other fine touches, this meritage blend hits the right chords and shows just the right weight. Deep, handsome, and fairly seamless; some light oak is applied skillfully, and in general the final product sings a pretty song. Inner quote mark (11/2000)
92 points Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
Outer quote mark The outstanding 1997 Trilogy Proprietary Red Wine offers a dark ruby/purple color, and super-expressive aromatics consisting of black fruits, licorice, blueberries, and floral scents. With a fine tannic under-pinning, this elegant yet impressively rich, well-endowed, balanced effort is already approachable, and promises to evolve effortlessly for 15-18 years.
