Reviews For This Wine


 
International Wine Cellar | 91

($90; 15.4% alcohol; includes 4% merlot) Bright ruby-red. Roasted dark berries, black cherry, graphite, dark chocolate and nutty oak on the nose. Smooth and sweet in the mouth, with the dark fruit flavors joined by smoke and earth notes. Substantial tannins show a slight dryness. Not the last word in complexity but there's more going on here than just fruit.

The dense purple-colored 2004 Cabernet Sauvignon's hefty 15.1% alcohol is well-disguised by classic aromas of white chocolate, black currants, blackberries, licorice, and coffee beans. This dense, medium to full-bodied, opulent, fleshy, powerful effort boasts sweet tannin and low acidity. Drink it over the next 10-15 years.

Smooth, plush and concentrated. A multidimensional expression of Cabernet, with layers of currant, blackberry, plum and spice. Supple-textured, this keeps a focus on the fruit and is supported by firm, ripe tannins. Yet fruit glides through on the finish. 737 cases made.
