International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 138

($78) Good medium-deep ruby. Blackberry and licorice on the nose. Lush, superripe and concentrated, with a port-like quality to the dark berry and licorice flavors. This fat cabernet boasts serious sweetness in the middle palate and the tannins are sweet too. Shows a more convincing structure than the merlot.

More backward, but still accessible is the inky/purple-colored 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon Peterson Family Vineyard. A sensational perfume of melted licorice, black currants, smoked meats, underbrush, and toasty oak are followed by blackberry liqueur-like flavors. This is a powerful, full-throttle, concentrated Cabernet to consume over the next 15+ years.

Wine Spectator Author: James Laube Issue: Web

The initial whiff of new leather and toasty oak is appealing, though this is a bit tight on the palate, taking time for the zesty wild berry, currant and black cherry flavors to unfold, ending with a flash of black licorice.

A beautiful full bodied ruby red wine with a wonderful mouthfeel a nose of cherries, berries and some leather, a long and persistent finish. a delightful wine with a real kick at 15.7% alcohol. More to come from this wine in the future.
