"Round and polished, this harmonious red offers plum, tobacco, cocoa and cedar flavors over well-integrated tannins. Spicy and herbal notes add interest but it's the fruit that lingers on the finish. Drink now through 2012. 500 cases made. –TM" -Rated 90, Wine Spectator
"The 2005 Predicador is a new offering priced for the masses (or at least the majority of TWA subscribers) with enough quantity (500 cases) to have some distribution. Deep crimson-colored, it offers up a sexy perfume of pain grille, mineral, violets, and assorted red and black fruits. Smooth-textured, relatively forward, layered, and long, it will evolve for several years and provide pleasure through 2020.
Words can barely do justice to how singular these wines are. They must be tasted to be believed." -Rated 93, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
