Medium red. Vinous aromas of cherry, redcurrant and tobacco. Sweeter and rounder than the 1999, with a bit more flesh and fat to buffer its structure. In a distinctly suppler style. Finishes with sweet tannins.

The 2000 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve, from a tough vintage, is not as powerful as most examples. Nevertheless, it possesses a deep ruby/purple color as well as a sweet bouquet of damp earth, black currants, tobacco leaf, and saddle leather. Medium-bodied with supple tannin, and a surprisingly long finish, it may improve in the bottle, and prove to be unusually long lived for the vintage (12-15 years).

Little tight. Needs roughly 4+ hours of decanting. Seemed to open up after it had sat. Flavors became more noticable with the smell of oak tapering off.
