Wonderful aromas of currants and blackberries, with hints of spices and licorice developing in the glass. Full bodied, with very well integrated tannins and a clean, fruity finish. This is elegant and pretty for a rich wine. Pull the cork after 2013.
The 1,800-case cuvee of 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Sonoma is virtually identical, with perhaps less oak and structure. Both of these Cabernets beg for 4-5 years of cellaring, and should keep for two decades. (RP)
Bright ruby-red. Deep aromas of raspberry, cassis, violet and minerals. In a distinctly creamy style, but with a rocky minerality and firm acidity framing and lifting the black raspberry fruit. This concentrated, mineral-driven wine shows an intriguing suggestion of grapefruit peel and finishes with noteworthy persistence.
Tightly wound and firm, with roasted coffee, dried herb and dried berry flavors that are intense and concentrated, rustic and cedary, slowly moving into a pleasing loamy earthiness that gives this a distinctive quality. Best from 2012 through 2022.
