Has the usual mid-Napa aromas of cassis, smoke and oak. Flavors are similar, ripe and fruity, verging on jammy. But the tannins are ultrasoft and creamy, yet complex and lacy. Provides sheer pleasure now or you can age it. From consulting winemaker Heidi Barrett. (WE)
A very seductive wine. Rich in flavor, finesse and polish, with ripe, juicy plum, blackberry, cherry, tar, tea, spice and pretty toasty oak. Not overdone, but complex and elegant, with fine, detailed tannins. Drinkable now. Best from 2001 through 2008. 700 cases made.
Medium red-ruby. Pungent, highly aromatic nose of dark berries, cracked pepper, dark chocolate, shoe polish and oak spice; ripe, complex and slightly briary. Thick and intensely flavored, with flavors similar to the aromas; shows an almost exotic dark berry flavor. Excellent depth of flavor and extract. Fairly strong but well-managed tannins are nicely supported by the wine sheer material. A strong showing. (ST)
A brilliant, backward Cabernet Sauvignon, this dark ruby/purple-colored 1996 exhibits blackberry, cassis, and loamy soil scents in the moderately-endowed bouquet. The tannin level is high, and the wine slightly austere, but rich, medium to full-bodied, and concentrated. It will require patience from prospective purchasers. It exhibits good ripeness, admirable purity, and a long finish. Anticipated maturity: 2004-2018. (RP)
