A lovely Cab, elegant and harmonious. Strikes an even balance between cherry and blackberry flavors, smoky oak, sweet herbs, cocoa and spice. The tannins are beautifully ripe and soft. Of all these qualities, balance is foremost.
Beautifully crafted, dark, rich and layered, with blackberry, cherry, plum and wild berry fruit that zooms across the palate, holding a tight focus and finishing with a long, complex aftertaste. The tannins firm up nicely on the finish. (JL)
Immediately gratifying, soft and rich, with sweet oak and juicy black cherry and chocolate notes. It expands into a far more structured and complex wine, with pleasant leafy herb and espresso notes, chewy tannins and mouthwatering acidity. One for the cellar. 17.5/20 points.
The 2001 Cinq Cepages (76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot. 8% Cabernet Franc, 4% Malbec and 2% Petit Verdot) is a silky, fully mature, fruity, seductive, round wine offering up notes of earth, bay leaf, sweet currants and plums along with sweet tannins. It should offer enjoyment for another 5-6 years. (RP)
