($110; includes 5% petit verdot) Full ruby-red. Cassis, black cherry, plum, mocha and pipe tobacco on the nose. Big, broad and velvety, with excellent volume and richness for the vintage. Flavors of cassis, Valrhona chocolate and sweet oak spices. Maintains its focus on the back end, which features thick but broad tannins and excellent length. Impressive California cabernet. Also tasted: 2000 Old Vine Cuvee Napa Valley, 2000 Sangiovese Napa Valley, 2000 Merlot Napa Valley.

Amazing, lucious wine. Still young, tons of fruit, great nose, smooth finish, rivals a Bordeaux first growth
