International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 135

($60; 82% new oak, all Taransaud) Good deep red-ruby. Aromas of currant, plum, smoke and tar. Sweet, shapely and intensely flavored, and quite dry. Began distinctly tight, finishing with some tarry, edgy oak, but showed a lusher texture with extended aeration without coming across as weighty. Actually, a pretty interesting bottling, but needs time in the cellar.

Wine Advocate Author: Jay Miller Issue: 172

The 2004 The Widowmaker "En Chamberlin Vineyard" is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon aged in French oak, 75% new. The most massive of Cayuse's Bordeaux-styled wines, this purple-colored behemoth offers an imposing nose of pain grille, scorched earth, espresso roast, licorice, and black currants. Brooding on the palate, this amazingly rich and concentrated wine is an infant in terms of its development. There is enough structure to support 10-20 years in the cellar but there is so much extract and baby fat that the wine can be enjoyed now with a dry-aged prime ribeye. For those with patience, The Widowmaker (could this be a reference to the potential longevity of the wine?) should drink well through 2050. Personally, I look forward to drinking this wine when I'm 105. If that is not enough, I tasted a barrel sample of a 2005 Grenache which rivals the best grown in the USA. Could it be that before long Manfred Krankl of SQN will be known as the Christophe Baron of the Central Coast?

Wine Spectator Author: Harvey Steiman

This smells of herbs, but offers a mouthful of gorgeous plum and currant fruit on a supple frame. Finishes with harmony and a distinct stylishness. The savory notes add plenty of interest, and the oak integrates smoothly.
