International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 90

Superripe aromas of cassis, black cherry, cocoa powder, loam, flowers and menthol. Dense and fat but juicy, with very good flavor intensity and solid underlying spine. Concentrated flavors of black cherry, currant and loam offer a youthful austerity. Finishes with firm but supple tannins, a hint of fresh herbs and very good persistence.

The dark ruby/purple-colored 1997 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa is brilliant. Small quantities (7% of each) of Cabernet Franc and Merlot have been added to the blend, giving the wine more aromatic breadth and flavor dimension. Dense and rich, with high extraction, sweet fruit, full body, outstanding purity, and mineral/spicy aromas, the 1997 should drink well for 10-15 years.

At the Grumm's BBQ we had the 97 Shafer Napa and the 04 Ilsley Cab's. The Shafer was surprisingly good considering it is 12 years old. Good color and body, Soft with light fruit. Real easy to drink after opening. The Ilsley was similar but had slightly more flavor and may improve a little. Drink both now, the Ilsley has a few years left in it.
