Professional Reviews For This Wine


International Wine Cellar | Rating: 91

($110; includes 5% petit verdot) Full ruby-red. Cassis, black cherry, plum, mocha and pipe tobacco on the nose. Big, broad and velvety, with excellent volume and richness for the vintage. Flavors of cassis, Valrhona chocolate and sweet oak spices. Maintains its focus on the back end, which features thick but broad tannins and excellent length. Impressive California cabernet. Also tasted: 2000 Old Vine Cuvee Napa Valley, 2000 Sangiovese Napa Valley, 2000 Merlot Napa Valley.

Wine Varietal: Cabernet Sauvignon


Cabernet Sauvignon is perhaps the world's best known red variety, with its full-bodied, intense profile. An offspring of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc, it is the primary grape of Bordeaux's Left Bank (Medoc and Graves regions) and the Napa Valley, but can be found growing all over the world. Typical descriptors for Cabernet Sauvignon are cassis, cedar, mint, black pepper, eucalyptus, and pencil lead.
