    ($80; from Helen and Stanley Cheng's vineyard in Gordon Valley, located in the southeast corner of Napa County; made by Mark Herold) Good full ruby-red. Cassis and mint on the nose. Sweet, spicy, slightly medicinal flavors of black cherry and spices. Slightly spiky with acidity and in need of time in bottle to harmonize. From vines planted in 1999.

    Performing even better than it did from cask, the 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon (288 cases of 100% Cabernet Sauvignon made by up-and-coming winemaker Mark Herold for proprietors Stanley and Helen Cheng) looks to be sensational. Its inky/blue/purple color is followed by an explosive nose of blueberry liqueur intermixed with white chocolate and acacia flowers. Full-bodied, opulent, and dense with high but sweet levels of tannin, marvelous purity, and a layered finish that lasts for 40+ seconds, this superb 2003 can be drunk young or cellared for two decades.
