Loads of blueberries and spices on the nose, with hints of almonds and chocolate. Full bodied, with good fruit and soft round tannins. A little jammy but I like the opulent character. Why wait?
Opaque purple with lots of creme de cassis, creosote, charcoal, blackberry, and espresso roast, this wine again has a chocolatey edge, full-bodied flavors, and loads of fruit, depth, and power. Drink it over the next 15+ years. (RP) 92+
Very ripe, teetering on pruny, with extracted blackberry, black licorice and gravelly earth flavors, ending with gritty, extracted tannins that leave a drying sensation.--Blind 2007 California Cabernet retrospective (January 2017). Drink now through 2023. (JL, Web-2017
Saturated bright ruby. Livelier on the nose than the merlot, with showy aromas of crushed cassis, black cherry, licorice and violet. Then juicy and energetic in the mouth, offering captivating sweetness and good grip to the dark berry and dark chocolate flavors. I find much more definition and structure here than in the 2007 merlot. Finishes with substantial tongue-dusting, building tannins. Serious wine for aging. (ST)
(15.9% alcohol): Blackberry liqueur, blueberry, bitter chocolate, menthol and violet on the nose; very ripe but remains just this side of roasted. A sweet, thick bomb of black fruits on the palate, with mineral and herbal notes giving it good definition. This powerful, liqueur-like wine finishes with some alcoholic warmth but the tannins are broad and fine-grained. In the rather extreme style of this winery's reds but very well done, with enough structure to ensure shape and longevity. (ST)
