This is a great Cab that showcases the ageability of certain Napa Cabs. It's tightly wound now, with acids and rich tannins overshadowing the pure, sweet blackberry, black cherry and cassis flavors. Impressive for its intensity, power and harmony. Drink tonight, or cellar it for a decade.
Sweet aromas of flowers, blueberries, black currants, licorice and smoky oak emerge from this full-bodied, opulent Cabernet Sauvignon. While close to full maturity, it should continue to provide enjoyment for 12-15 more years. Full-bodied, vibrant and vigorously concentrated with abundant texture and richness, this beautiful 2001 is still an adolescent. (RP)
A bold, rich, concetrated wine with lots of flavor dimensions and excellent structure. Dense and complex, with currant, anise, cedar and fresh earth flavors, it picks up chocolate and mocha on the finish, and should only get better over the next couple of years. (JL)
(bottled the week before my visit to the new Etude winery in Carneros) Good medium ruby. Crystallized currant, licorice and smoke on the vibrant nose. Dense and firmly structured, with dark berry, licorice and tar flavors. Offers a peppery impression of concentration. Finishes sappy, firmly tannic and long. I would not be surprised if this wine merited a higher score five to seven years from now. (ST) 92+
High in loamy, woodsy, caramelly complexities and solidly fruity in both nose and mouth, this fairly full-bodied bottling is supple and ever so slightly fleshy in palatefeel with underlying strata of ripe fruit, tannin and a dollop of finishing heat. Its solid center of fruit and good depth carries it and allows full expression of its black cherry, curranty, oaky flavors, and those attractions hold admirably in the lingering aftertaste. *Two Stars*
