Beautifully orchestrated, with a wonderful sense of harmony and finesse, and ripe, plush-textured currant, black cherry, anise, sage and cedar flavors that fan out and linger on the finish.

Dark ruby/purple-colored, with a restrained but elegant nose of spicy new oak and red fruits, this finesse-styled Cabernet Sauvignon (a blend of 92% Cabernet Sauvignon and 8% Merlot that was bottled after 21 months in French oak casks) is medium-bodied and moderately tannic. It also possesses supple fruit in the mid-palate, and an attractive, stylish finish. Not a blockbuster, it is a wine to drink over the next 7-8 years.

Deep ruby-red. Blackcurrant, cocoa powder and leather on the nose, with a sweet hint of fruitcake. Juicy, sweet currant flavor supported by bright acids and firm tannic spine; offers lovely intensity and finishing persistence. A stylish, fresh wine with sweet, harmonious tannins.
Dark garnet colored wine with a full nose of dusty cherry, cassis, leather, vanilla, light spice, and slight game. Mature with good fruit, light tannins, and slightly elevated acidity. Moderate length on the finish.
