Full ruby-red. Cassis, leather, bitter chocolate, cinnamon and eucalyptus on the nose. Bracing, slightly bound-up flavor of juicy dark berries, with a strong component of spicy oak. The juicy freshness repeats on the firmly tannic finish, which shows excellent length. Needs time in bottle.

The opaque blue/purple-colored 1996 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa boasts an exceptional nose of creme de cassis, minerals, and spice. It takes at least a decade for wines such as this to begin to reveal more identity and vintage character. The cassis/blackberry liqueur-like fruit are present, as are mouthsearing levels of tannin and impressive extract. This blockbuster should be at its peak between 2010-2040.

Wine Spectator | 91

Tightly wound, with firm, crisp tannins wrapped around a core of currant, black cherry, wild berry, cedar, anise, sage and spice. Finishes with enough tannin to merit short-term cellaring.
