Well-ripened and well-focused, the currant aromas of this solid Cabernet are decked out in rich, creamy oak and layered notes of cola and sweet loam. Supple and slightly fleshy in feel at entry, then filling the palate with flavors of ripe currants, caramel and a rich, loamy nuance, the wine transcends vintage concerns and is satisfying from front to back. It will improve for three to five years at the least and should hold up for a decade or more of rewarding drinking. *One Star*
Shows what a good winery can do in a challenging vintage. This wine is elegant rather than profound, opening with beautiful scents of cedar, toast, herbs and cherries. It’s light-bodied, and finishes with a gentle scour of tannins.
Mature, with a tight core of earthy currant, herb, sage and cedary oak character, this is very tight and unevolved, ending with the same chunky flavor themes.—2000 California Cabernet blind retrospective (August 2010). Drink now through 2015. (Web only-2011)
