International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 84

Red-ruby. Slightly high-toned aromas of cassis, cherry cough syrup, chocolate and mint. Juicy, firm and intensely flavored; a bit hot but not at all roasted. Tannins coat the teeth. As with so many '96 cabernets, I get an impression of somewhat uneven ripening. But this is built to age.

The 1996 Cabernet Sauvignon (2% Cabernet Franc is blended in) has filled out nicely since I first tasted it. Aromas of cedar, chocolate, spice box, and black currants are moderately intense. Medium to full-bodied, with good spice, in addition to excellent richness, symmetry, and harmony, this is an intense yet stylish Cabernet Sauvignon to drink now and over the next 16+ years.

Smooth, ripe and spicy, with a pretty array of anise, plum, cherry and strawberry tones, finishing with a focused core of flavors and firm tannins.

Wonderful Cabernet. Not overpowering or in your face. More elegance. Tannins silky and perfectly integrated. Notes of cherry, red fruit and cedar. Delicious finish that you savor.
