External Review:

Winemaker Notes - Dark, rich and complex fruit notes of ripe blackberry, plum, cherry and cassis are complimented by vanilla, baker s spices and a hint of licorice. This dense and weighty wine possesses a broad mid-palate balanced by classic structure, refined tannins and a lengthy finish.

Clos Pegase:

Earthy spice. Not as much depth as other Clos Pegase I've had. But enjoyable.

Nice body in this cab. Even after a long day of tasting reds, this cab stands out with full flavor, nicely oaked (not too much or too little), and a nose that's just bloody brilliant! Easy on the tongue with a meal, or just socializing with frinds, or pondering your navel.

A nicely-made wine with a dark ruby/purple color, and sweet plum, jammy cassis and cherry aromas with lavish toasty oak in the background. An attractive, fleshy mouthfeel, good extract and an easy to understand, plump, chewy style.

Smooth and elegant, yet with plenty of structure and staying power. Flavors are well integrated with black currant, blackberry, herbs, tobacco and chocolate in evidence. Finishes long, and should improve nicely in the cellar; drink now through 2006. Tasted twice, with consistent notes.

Marked by a slight gamelike edge, it also offers enough currant, cherry, sage and spice flavors to hold your interest. Has the tannic strength to age into 2001.

This winery continues to improve the quality of its offerings as evidenced by recent releases. The 1994 Cabernet Sauvignon exhibits gorgeous ripe blueberry and raspberry fruit in its flamboyant nose. Deep and velvety-textured, with impressive extraction, this full-bodied, sweet tasting (from fruit, not sugar) sexy Cabernet should drink well when released and keep for 12ndash;15 years.

This is Clos Pegasersquo;s basic, least expensive Cabernet, but it shows the effort proprietor Jan Shrem has put into the winery and vineyards over the years. Itrsquo;s quite a good wine, rich with gorgeous tannins framing ripe currant, cassis, chocolate and licorice flavors. At its best now and for a few years, this 100% Cab is, in a word, luscious.

A warm black fruit bouquet leads to a medium-bodied palate with elevated tannins and acidity. Large framed with a solid core of chocolate, tea and cedar flavors in the finish.
