This should prove to be quite popular, as itrsquo;s loaded with blackberry and sweet black cherry fruit flavors. It carries the fruit with stiff but polished tannins, and brings in accents of licorice, coffee and dark chocolate. Nothing is overdone; the balance here is just right, and the addition of 16% Syrah brings with it a dash of pepper.

Fresh and vibrant, offering a plush mouthful of currant, cherry, and roasted beet flavors, finishing with a distinct note of toasted marshmallow. This has depth and lingers gracefully. Drink now through 2018.

Polished, round and generous, offering a plush mouthful of blackberry, cherry and mint flavors that ride easily over fine tannins through the long, expressive finish. Drink now through 2015.

Ripe, soft and generous, appealing for its earth-scented currant flavors, finishing with a firm layer of tannins. Drink now through 2010.

Candied blackberries, waxy dark cherries, spices, tar, and licorice make up the mouth-watering aromatics of the 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon Indian Wells. This outstanding wine, which is produced in Bordeaux-like quantities (21,000 cases) is sultry, decadent, and intense. Its suave personality slathers the palate with lush, broad waves of black fruits and tar. Bertheau, who believes, as I do, that texture is paramount in great wines, should be proud of this effortrsquo;s sensual mouthfeel and supple finish. It may not be complex but boy what pleasure it delivers! Drink this terrific value over the next 5 years.

Dunkles Purpur. Intensives Bouquet nach reifen Zwetschgen, Heidelbeeren, feine Edelholznoten, Kirschtabak und Holundergelee. Im Gaumen saftig, viel blaue Beeren, Giandujanougat und eine herrliche, an Kandis erinnernde Fruchtsüsse im ganz feinen Extrakt, samtiges, kakaortiges Tannin endet in ein langes Finale mit edlem Black Curranttouch. Ein Klassewein zu einem Superpreis.
