Wine Advocate | Rating: 93The 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate is a delicious offering from this vineyard on the eastern hillsides of Napa Valley that is farmed by David Abreu with consulting work from Heidi Barrett. The wine offers plenty of blueberry, black raspberry and black currant fruit, a full-bodied opulence, a hint of minerality and a lush, heady finish. This sexy, fully mature 2003 can be drunk over the next 5-6 years.Author: Robert Parker
