($80; a blend of 63% cabernet sauvignon and 37% cabernet franc) Bright ruby-red. Aromatic nose combines currant, black raspberry, violet, dark chocolate and sexy oak tones. Soft and appealing, with moderate density and firm acidity. Finishes with dusty, light tannins and very good length and grip. Slightly disjointed today, in need of a year or so to absorb its acidity.

Lots of alcohol immediately evident from this wine's viscosity. Very deep velvety look. Sweet, almost heavy in comparison to the 1998 and 1999. Almost a hint of Mendoza (Delia is originally Argentine and would presumably repudiate this with all her might). Thick and sweet compared to the rest of the wines in this tasting but more delicate and enlivened by more acidity than most top California Cabernets. Long with the merest hint of herbaceousness as a topnote (conditions were a little like those in 1998).

Lots of attractive, up-front fruit pleasure, with a core of black cherry and blackberry shaded by cedar, mocha, coffee and leather. Finishes with a sense of elegance and ripe, integrated tannins. 4,647 cases made.

Earthy nose with heavy earth and tobacco flavors. Smooth finish with a hit of berry at the end.
