International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 84

Good deep red-ruby. Ripe aromas of cherry, dark chocolate, tar and mint. Less dense than the '97 but shows the baby fat of the vintage. But doesn't have quite as much flavor development as the '97. Finishes with good length and slightly green tannins.

The dark ruby-colored 1996 Cabernet Sauvignon Alexander Valley exhibits a pronounced smoky, espresso bean, and kirsch-scented nose. Round, dense, rich, full-bodied, and open-knit, its low acid flavors are undeniably appealing. Black olives make an appearance in the wine's aromatics as it sits in the glass.

Wine Spectator Author: James Laube

Spicy, with herb, currant, anise, cedar and berry notes striking a nice balance between fruit and oak. Supple tannins make it approachable now. 45,500 cases made.

Drink now, or maybe don't so as not to ruin your fond memories of this once extravagant bottling. Gone is much of the richness and well-rounded, well-extracted fruit, replaced with a one note, fairly pedestrian experience that does not begin to hint at what this was in its younger days.
