    ($36; includes 5% petit verdot) Bright ruby-red. Fascinating, superripe nose combines plum, iron, leather, mocha, hot rocks, underbrush, licorice and game, plus a light note of raisining fruit. Then sweet, pliant and generous, with exceptional depth of texture. Very suave, seamless wine, finishing very long and sweet, with huge, broad tannins that coat the cheeks and the front teeth. Seavey's flagship wine has performed consistently well in my tastings in recent years.

    Dense and chewy, with ripe, rich tannins holding sway over the earthy currant, sage and herbal notes. It finsihes with creamy, mocha-scented oak, which gives it an added dimension. 1,500 cases made.

    Readers looking for a St.-Estephe look-alike should check out this brooding, monster Cabernet Sauvignon from Bill Seavey and winemaker Philippe Melka. Tasting nearly the same as it did eight years ago, it reveals stunning, sweet chocolaty notes interwoven with notions of burning embers, loamy soil, black currants and forest floor. The complex aromatics are followed by a full-bodied, powerful, backward wine that still needs 8-10 years of cellaring. This blend of 95% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Petit Verdot from the dry-farmed hillside vineyards of Bill and the late Mary Seavey is a 35-50-year wine. Only for true connoisseurs and those with patience!

    I don't know if I am losing my faith in Cabernet or any mid-range priced bottles lately ($40). Got this a few years ago and in truth Seavey was one of the initial wines that made me want to get into this crazy hobby. Anyway, I was hoping for a bit more elegance. However, it was still a powerhouse and quite a tongue scraper. I thought it was still a bit unbalanced and still needed some time or maybe was going through a dumb phase. Could have been better although I still have positive thoughts for Seavey.

    Quite lovely. Classic California cab, still had good tannic structure, chewy with a balance of fruit and earthiness - nothing pronounced over the other.

The flagship offering from Seavey is their Cabernet Sauvignon known for its classic Bordeaux styling, richness, and longevity, with some vintages achieving 30-40 years of cellaring potential. This wine is built for strength and ageability, with long macerations and three years of barrel and bottle aging prior to release.

Seavey wines are very well-received by critics and fans alike, and since the inaugural 1990 vintage of Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay, all Seavey Vineyard grapes are used exclusively for the estate produced wines.
