In possession of everything anyone could want in a wine, this profound effort offers up a bouquet of lavender, cedarwood, creme de cassis, blackberry, subtle smoke and incense. It is broad, full-bodied and opulent with ethereal complexity, remarkable concentration and that indescribable gravitas and nobility that world-class prodigious wines possess. It is the most youthful of this quartet and probably won’t be at its best for another 3-4 years, but it should drink well for at least two decades thereafter. (RP)
This remains a stunningly complex and beautifully crafted wine, capturing optimal ripeness and exhibiting layers of blackberry, raspberry, plum and boysenberry. Juicy, fleshy and structured, with appealing fresh earth scents. Drink now through 2030. (JL, Web Only-2014)
Good full ruby. Aromas of blackberry, cassis, licorice, violet and tar, with more new oak showing than in the RBS. Then less pliant and open in the mouth, with considerable power to its dark fruit and mineral flavors. Very chewy young cabernet with a strong backbone for aging, and much less fruit-forward than the RBS. The Clone 4 component is responsible for the wine's muscularity, notes winemaker Thomas Brown, while Clone 6 gives the floral high tones. (ST) 92+
