90 Points - Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar:

"Pale, green-tinged yellow. Intense, mineral-laced aromas of candied citrus fruits, quince and honeysuckle. Dry and precise, offering incisive lemon and bitter quinine flavors and a deeper note of pear skin. Closes silky and long, with nervy acidity adding lift and finishing bite." – Josh Raynolds (Sept/Oct 2013)

95 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The 2005 Barbaresco Santo Stefano is striking in its beauty. This firm, structured wine bursts from the glass with layers of dark red fruit, spices, flowers and menthol. Medium in body, the wine possesses notable inner beauty in a transparent, almost weightless style. There is superb pedigree here, not to mention tons of class. Once again the Santo Stefano bottling delivers the goods. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2025." - Antonio Galloni (Oct 2008)

"Good medium red. Black cherry and camphor on the rather Barolo-like nose. Less fruity and more medicinal today, a bit tough in the middle palate. Finishes with serious, slightly drying tannins. In an awkward stage today: will this blossom with bottle age?" -Stephen Tanzer (Nov/Dec '09)

91+ Points - Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar:
"Medium red. Very ripe strawberry on the expressive, forward nose. Elegant and penetrating, with very good grip to the cherry and strawberry flavors. Not especially fleshy for the year; in fact, this went into a shell in the glass. Finishes with edgy tannins and lovely lift. This suave wine should harmonize with five or six years of cellaring." -Stephen Tanzer (Nov/Oct '11)

91 Points - Wine Spectator:

"An elegant style, exhibiting rose and white pepper aromas followed by flavors of strawberry, cherry and herb. Balanced on the tannic side, with a firm, dense structure and a lingering finish. Best from 2016 through 2030. 200 cases imported." –BS (May 31, 2013)

92 Points - Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar:
"Fresh pear, nectarine, orange and honey on the highly perfumed nose. Pliant, palate-staining orchard and citrus fruit flavors show a suave blend of richness and vivacity, with a hint of anise coming out with aeration. Fleshy but dry and precise on the finish, with the orange and floral notes strongly echoing. For a luxury bottling this is a very serious, balanced, uncompromising wine, showing no easy sweetness or excess fat."– Josh Raynolds (Sept 2013)

Robert Parker - 92 Points:
"The 2004 Dalmau Reserva is sourced from a single 50+ year old plot within the 300 hectare Ygay estate. Made from a blend of 86% Tempranillo, 8% Cabernet Sauvignon and 6% Graciano, the wine was aged for 21 months in new French barriques. Dark ruby/purple-colored, it reveals an aromatic array of toasty new oak, spice box, mineral, blueberry, and black currants. Considerably more powerful than its traditionally made siblings, on the palate if is full-bodied, firm, layered, and quite concentrated. The spicy flavors fall on the dark side of the spectrum with blackberry, plum, and black currant in the forefront. The wine has at least a decade of aging potential and will be at its peak from 2015 to 2030 although it can be enjoyed now with a charcoal-grilled ribeye." -Jay Miller (April 2008)

94(+?) Points - Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar:
"(includes 4% petit verdot): Good deep ruby. Rich, complex aromas and flavors of cassis, black raspberry, mocha and truffle, lifted by mineral and violet notes. Rich, plush and fine-grained; wonderfully round and layered in the mouth. For such a lush, deep wine, this cabernet boasts outstanding grip and verve. Really echoes in the mouth and on the long, classically dry aftertaste, where the tannins coat the teeth without leaving any impression of dryness. Terrific cabernet, perhaps the most complete wine to date from Vineyard 29." -Stephen Tanzer (May/June 13)

"Bright red-ruby. Cassis, black cherry and licorice on the rather medicinal nose. Concentrated and savory; nicely balanced and dry, showing none of the vintage's hot side. Finishes saline and long. A very good showing." - Stephen Tanzer (Nov/Oct '11)

91 Points - Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar (Vintage 2010):
"(includes 17% merlot, 2% petit verdot and 1% cabernet franc): Opaque ruby. Bright aromas of dark berries, cherry pit and flowers pick up notes of pipe tobacco and smoky minerals with air. Juicy and precise on the palate, offering sweet blackcurrant and cherry flavors with suggestions of anise and mocha. Shows impressive energy on the finish, which is firmed by tangy acidity and a touch of bitter cherry" -Josh Raynolds (Nov/ Dec 13)

"Inky purple. Youthful aromas and flavors of candied dark berries and licorice, with a floral topnote. Juicy and expansive, with supple texture and soft tannins. Closes with appealing sweetness and no rough edges. Looks very approachable already." -Josh Raynolds (May/Jun 13)

90-92 Points - Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar:
"Glass-staining purple. Smoke- and spice-accented aromas and flavors of dark berries and cola, with a hint of tobacco that gains strength with air. Shows very good energy and lift, with tangy acidity adding cut. Fine-grained tannins shape the long, smooth, appealingly sweet finish. I suspect that this wine will drink very nicely in its youth" -Stephen Tanzer (May/Jun 13)
