Shows the deft Phelps touch in the softly complex texture whose tannins are just as velvety as they come, and the ripe, pure fruit. The blackberry, cassis and red cherry flavors are enriched with vanilla and toast from oak.
*One Star* From its very well-proportioned, handsomely defined aromas of ripe currants, balanced oak and subtle suggestions of chocolate to its tasty and solidly extracted flavors of cassis and sweet spice, this delicious wine is convincingly keyed on Cabernet Sauvignon varietal characteristics. It is moderately full in body and slightly supple in feel on the palate, and it is firmed by a solid measure of integral tannins. It warrants at least a few years of age and will reward as many as five to eight.
The 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon is an elegant, dark ruby-hued, medium-bodied effort offering aromas of earth, berry fruit, herbs, and spice. It reflects this vintage, which has produced very good Cabernets ... (RP)
Ruby-red. Cassis, licorice, tobacco and a whiff of mint on the nose. Sweet and rather soft on the palate, with black fruit, tobacco and chocolate flavors nicely framed by fresh acidity. Finishes with fairly even, dusty tannins and suggestions of mint and menthol. Very Napa Valley.
