($85) Good saturated medium ruby. Briary black raspberry, violet, licorice, cocoa powder and fresh herbs on the nose. Dense, fat and spicy, with superripe flavors of black raspberry and black cherry syrup. A rather chunky wine with impressive sweetness for the year. Finishes with chewy but ripe tannins and notes of candied violet and chocolate. Made by Bob Foley, who is also responsible for the Pride Mountain Vineyards wines.

A strong effort for the vintage, the dark ruby/purple-colored 2000 Cabernet Sauvignon reveals aromas of sweet creme de cassis intermixed with notions of creosote and earth. Made in a full-bodied, ripe, accessible style, it will provide delicious drinking over the next 8-10 years.

This 100% Cabernet Sauvignon hails from a four acre vineyard on the east side of Napa Valley. Dark black cherry red hue with lots of thin legs showing moderate coloration. A forward nose (typical of many 2000s) of cassis, graham crackers, cherry, leather, and smoky anise. Soft and plush in the mouth with light tannins and integrated acidity. The wine tails off rather quickly with mocha flavor coming on at the end.
