Medium ruby. Complex nose melds black raspberry, dark chocolate, licorice, roasted meat and sexy oak notes. Fat and sweet in the middle, with warm flavors of plum, game and smoke; suggests almost roasted ripeness, yet shows very good flavor definition. Finishes with horizontal, fine tannins and lovely persistence. A very successful 2000, from an area (Conn Valley) in which the fruit obviously ripened well. (ST)
There are approximately 2,000 cases of the 2000 Cabernet Sauvignon, a blend of 92% Cabernet Sauvignon and 8% Petit Verdot. A powerful, strong effort for this challenging vintage, it exhibits an opaque purple color as well as a tight but promising bouquet of earth, creme de cassis, wood, forest floor, and licorice aromas. This is a big, deep, chewy atypically authoritative 2000 that will benefit from 5-6 years of cellaring, and keep for 15-20. It may be one of the longest lived Cabernets of the vintage. Kudos to Seavey for this accomplishment. (RP)
