External Reviews for Bommarito Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley
Harmonious and well-balanced, integrating anise, cedar, currant, mocha and mineral flavors, it picks up intensity and complexity on the finish. Drink now through 2007.
Compare this with wine that sell for two or three times the price! An immense effort, dark, rich and deeply concentrated, packed with layers of rich currant, chocolate, mocha, cherry and herbal nuances. Finishes with a powerful, persistent aftertaste, rich, ripe tannins and wonderful complexity. Best from 2003 thorough 2012.
Supple, harmonious and graceful, with mocha and dill-scented oak wrapped around rich currant, olive, herb and leathery notes. Well-balanced and complex, if missing the extra dimensions of past vintages. Best from 2004 through 2010.
Smooth and ripe, floral and spicy in character, this Napa red displays tiers of juicy plum, blackberry and black cherry flavors that are complex and vibrant. Quite appealing now; will be even better from 2001 through 2007.

So ripe in black currant and mocha fruit, so rich in sweet tannins, so well structured. It's an impeccable Cabernet that's beautiful now, but should hold through the decade.
