Deep, well-defined curranty fruit is the driving force of this nicely extracted, young Cabernet, while complementary oak and deft touches of cocoa lend a boost in overall richness. If fairly full-bodied, the wine shows nary a hint of heaviness and sports a fine sense of balance from beginning to end. It is supple to start and finishes with appropriate tannins, but its astringency never gets in the way of its ongoing fruit, and time is a guaranteed remedy to its wholly acceptable toughness.
Full ruby-red. Inky aromas of cassis and sweet butter are a bit unforthcoming today. Delivers good freshness and thickness of texture but not particularly forthcoming or complex. Will this blossom with further time in bottle? I wonder. A bit clenched and medicinal for 2004, with an inky quality to its blackcurrant and kirsch flavors. Turns a bit dry with air. (ST)
This medium-bodied Cab might almost come from Alexander Valley, for all its herb-tinged berry-cherry flavors and soft tannins. It’s a polished, elegant wine, not particularly concentrated, but with a lovely sheen and a complex finish.
Creamy, cedary dill-laced and peppery oak is wrapped around a trim band of earthy currant, sage and pebble notes, ending with dry tannins. Needs time. (JL)
