This blend of 61% Cabernet Sauvignon and 39% Cabernet Franc reveals attractive cassis and blueberry notes, subtle oak, and spice. This wine is graceful, elegant, and medium-bodied, with sweet ripe tannin, and a moderate finish. It will drink well for 10-12 years. (RP)
Still the same confidence, concentration and mineral undertow, presumably from the volcanic slopes of the estate on Howell Mountain, but this wine has more spice and delicacy than either the 1998 or the 1995. The Cabernet Franc proportion is a typical 39 per cent. Beautiful balance. 18.5/20 points
Shows fresh, subtle aromas of cedar, cigar box, ripe plum and black cherry, with touches of mint and herb. Elegant, supple, full-bodied, complex and stylish, ending with a detailed finish. Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. (JL, Web Only-2009)
No tasting note given.
Bright ruby. Vibrant, multifaceted nose combines black raspberry, plum, bitter chocolate, leather, tar and smoke, plus a floral nuance. Bright, focused and very intensely flavored, with lovely sweetness and noteworthy detail. Bitter chocolate and dark berry notes, with a sweet overlay of oak. A structured, delineated wine with compelling density and sappy verve. The very long finish features fine, complex tannins. A superb example that really captures the potential of this cool, European-styled vintage. (ST) 92+
