This wine is so balanced it hits the palate as impeccable and gorgeous. The flavors, of currants, cherries, vanilla and sweet oak, are only part of it. It is so dry, so richly structured in tannins and acids, so pure through the long, spicy finish, that it easily deserves its high score. Will age well for up to a decade.
Nicely proportioned and remarkably polished for such a young Cabernet, this well-balanced bottling achieves a fine sense of refinement and steps away from the crowd of very ripe, oak-driven wines. Very long on the palate and showing a spine of fine-grained tannins, it will unfold and deepen over another half-dozen years or more of cellaring even though will be altogether drinkable in the near to mid-term.
Mid healthy crimson. Neat and a little sweet. Fresh and frisky. Medium weight and very different from the California Cabernet norm. Vigorous. 17/20 points. Drink to 2022. (JR)
Full ruby-red. Aromas of redcurrant, plum and chocolate accented by herbs and dried flowers. Supple on entry, then a touch herbal and dry in the middle palate, conveying moderate sweetness and depth to its blueberry, cherry and leather flavors. (ST)
