The charming, seductive, accessible 2000 Cabernet Sauvignon Ink Grade exhibits aromas and flavors of bitter chocolate, new saddle leather, cassis, blackberries, coffee, and tobacco leaf. This medium-bodied, soft, luscious and seductive wine will drink well for 10andndash;12 years.

Bright medium ruby. Medicinal black cherry, crushed blueberry, cocoa powder and violet on the nose, along with a faint Cabernet Franc-like weediness. Then youthful and primary, with sweet black fruit, violet and bitter chocolate flavors complicated by good herbal cut. A firm-edged, persistent wine that shows lively acids on the finish.

A gorgeous Cabernet Sauvignon that rivals the Beckstoffer-To-Kalon cuvee in 2002, is the 2002 Cabernet Sauvignon Ink Grade, a 375-case lot of 91% Cabernet Sauvignon and 9% Merlot. Extraordinarily pure creme de cassis characteristics along with licorice, smoke, and mineral notes jump from the glass of this full-bodied red. With sensational levels of richness in addition to chocolatey espresso notes intermixed with black currant liqueur and blueberries, this beauty should age effortlessly for 15+ years.

Good full ruby. Black fruits, licorice and minerals on the nose; shows the porty surmaturité of many of the other 2002s from this winery but boasts a bit more lift than the kenefick bottling. Fat, sweet, large-scaled and full, with brooding, medicinal flavors of cassis and black cherry. This, too, is in a rather unrefined style. Finishes with big, dusty tannins.

Bright, saturated ruby. Pretty aromas of blackberry, violet and mint. Juicy, intensely flavored and bright, with intriguing mineral, licorice and mint notes. Highly aromatic and saline in the mouth. Finishes firmly tannic and very long, with a late note of bitter chocolate.
