Professional Reviews For This Wine


International Wine Cellar | Rating: 92

($85; a blend of three vineyards, with 75% of the wine from Coombsville) Bright ruby. Cassis, blackberry, licorice and violet on the nose, complicated by coffee and chocolate; slightly port-like. Then dense and compellingly sweet, with an enticing sugar/acid balance and firm tannic backbone. A very fruity wine with considerable early appeal; has a family resemblance to the Mark Herold's own Merus bottling. This is just under 15% alcohol.

Wine Advocate | Rating: 91

A strong effort, the opaque purple-colored 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon offers up beautiful aromas of melted licorice, sweet new saddle leather, roasted herbs, creme de cassis, and spice box. Elegant yet authoritatively flavored with superb fruit, beautiful balance, and supple tannin, this 100% Cabernet Sauvignon cuvee can be enjoyed over the next 12-15 years.

Wine Spectator | Rating: 90

Ripe, rich and vivid, with intense blueberry and wild berry flavors that are tight and focused, revealing a dense, loamy core of currant fruit that provides a supple baseline of flavor and texture. Not shy with its tannins, which are ripe and integrated.

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.
