Sleek and elegant, with ripe and spicy cherry, wild berry and strawberry flavors. Turns supple and polished on the finish. Best from 2000 through 2007.
Seductively sweet, with ripe currant and cherry fruit framed by fancy oak, yet underlying tannins kick in the midway. Nowhere near its maximum integration; best left alone through 2008 to develop nuance.
Smooth, ripe and polished, with a pretty core of spicy plum and currant fruit and a touch of blackberry, it wins points for its elegance and grace, with a long, smooth, flavorful finish. Drink now through 2009.
Elegant and supple, showing herb, tobacco and tea-laced currant and black cherry flavors that are complex and well-proportioned, with a long, lingering finish. Drink now through 2013.
High-toned cherry, currant and wild berry fruit is supple, elegant and balanced, but this leaves you hoping for a shade more depth and richness. Drink now through 2011. Tasted twice, with consistent notes.
Young and tight, this rather intense Cabernet requires ample time to unfold, but once it does it shows plenty of oak on top of and underneath nice plum and cassis fruit. Having just been released, it's still a rustic ride where all elements are pronounced. Not a softy, it needs time to settle down.
