Wine Advocate 94pts: "There are 1,000 cases of the 1997 Cabernet Sauvignon Rutherford. It offers a distinctive kirsch, black cherry liqueur, and loamy soil-scented character to its full-bodied richness. It is expansive and charming. Full-bodied, with admirable depth and purity, this wine can be drunk now as well as over the next 20 years."
Wine Spectator 92pts: "Ultraripe and jammy, with layers of black cherry, wild berry and raspberry, finishing with a dose of heat and ripe tannins."
