*#6 on the Top 100 Wines of 2002* Dusty berry, currant, anise and cedary oak aromas follow through to a rich, concentrated core of flavors on the palate; yet for all its weight, there's a sense of suppleness and grace, with a rich curranty aftertaste. (JL)
7% Merlot; 7% Cabernet Franc; 1% Petit Verdot. Impressively concentrated black cherry fruitiness sits amidst a wealth of very rich oak and lightly loamy spice first in the deeply filled aromas and then again in the broad, slightly juicy, tannin-framed flavors that follow. If still on the tough and somewhat rugged side, the wine is entirely within the bounds of very young Cabernet, and its combination of depth, balance and fruity length make it a sure bet for long-term improvement. Practice patience with this one as it needs at least five years of age and will surely grow for twice that long.
Bright ruby-red. Cassis, bitter chocolate, licorice, black pepper and mint on the nose. Juicy, spicy and firm, with concentrated fruit and an attractive creaminess at the core. Flavors of cassis and bitter chocolate in the mouth and on the strong, persistent, ripely tannic finish. Good serious cabernet. (ST)
