Wine & Spirits ReviewFrom a 12.5-acre vineyard planted in 1989 to cabernet sauvignon (90%) and merlot (10%), this 2003 requires long aeration to get past its initial superripe, chocolatey character. Slowly, an intriguing soil complexity and refinement begin to develop, the wine potent, constricted around its tannins. After each taste, the wine leaves you breathing minerals for over a minute. Built to age ten years or more, this should prove exceptional with bottle time.Wine Tasting NotesThis wine's dense, highly extracted cassis and black cherry flavors and aromas are punctuated by distinct notes of cedar, smoke and forest, set in a ripe, firmly focused tannic structure ending in an elegant, sustained finish.
