Full ruby-red. More brooding aromas of black cherry, shoe polish, menthol and tobacco. Then bright and fruity, with lovely depth of black cherry flavor. Quite tightly structured, even a bit medicinal today, with sound acidity. Finishes with substantial, tongue-dusting tannins and very good length. 91+ (ST)
There's wonderful richness, depth, complexity and concentration to this Napa Cabernet, its layers of spicy currant, anise, blackberry, plum and light toasty oak folding together for a delicious aftertaste, firming up nicely on the finish. Has all the right ingredients. *Cellar Selection*
The awesome opaque purple-colored 1997 Cabernet Sauvignon Lamb Vineyard exhibits a fabulous nose of lead pencil, coffee, minerals, black currants, and licorice. The wine's massive richness, full body, and super-intense, concentrated fruit make for a spectacular, unctuously-textured, backward wine. As it sat in the glass, some of the mountain blueberry notes came forward. This Cabernet requires 4-5 years of cellaring, and should keep for 25-30 years ... at the minimum. (RP)
