Unquestionably a deep, dense, rich, massively structured and concentrated red from the newly-renamed Inglenook estate, formerly Niebaum-Coppola. Flavours are fixed in the dark fruit/black berry world, with layers of high quality oak expressed as sweet baking spice and tobacco leaf, almost port-like ripeness and good to very good length. The acidity is, amazingly enough, sufficient to balance this massive ensemble, and I'd suspect this needs another 3-6 years to enter into a more mature, interesting drinking range. Impressive in any case. Score: 94 (John Szabo, MS, WineAlign.com, Mar 2013)
