($100; cabernet sauvignon with 3% each merlot and cabernet franc) Good medium ruby color. Very aromatic, ripe nose hints at violet and a leafy franc note. Sweet, juicy and suave, with black cherry flavor nicely firmed by bright acidity. Highly perfumed in the mouth; bright and firmly built. Offers the clarity and grip that the '99 Cask cabernet misses. The tannins hit the palate late. May well merit a higher score with a few years of additional bottle aging.Author: Stephen Tanzer
