Very dark opaque in the glass. Mellow, some wood on the nose. Not as full bodied as I might have expected on the palate. Somewhat tart. Still some very serious tannins. Some cherry flavoring emerging on the second sip. Definitely a wine that is going to go better with food. I am going to test the above reviewer's recommendation and have this with lamb chops for dinner, tonight. US$45.00 at the winery in 2004. [Amendment on 4/20/12. Oh Yes. An hour of air definitely helped this wine and mating it with the Lamb Chops was outstanding. The tannin/acid harshnesses mellowed and the wine became rounder. I am upgrading my rating to 3-1/2 glasses.]

Firm and tannic but the ripe fruit flavors are pretty with plum, wildberry, and cherry notes filling out the sage and spice notes. Has the tannins to age into 1999.

Appealing for its supple texture and bright, forward flavors - layers of juicy cherry, currant, plum, and berry. Finishes with a spicy anise aftertaste and notes of tar, herb and cedary oak. Drinkable now if you look past its supple tannins, or age it into 1998 to 2002; it should only get more harmonious.

Exquisitely balanced, with ripe, rich, polished blackberry, black cherry and plummy flavors. Maintains a sense of elegance and grace, finishing with supple, fine-grain tannins. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Malbec. Drink now through 2010.

A plush and generous Napa red, this is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (52 percent) with Merlot and Cabernet Franc. It's filled with deep, dark savory fruit, a solidly build wine with the sort of mouthwatering Cabernet flavors that complement and complete the flavors of a lamb chop. Satisfying and ready to drink.

Absolutely delicious, a fat, sumptuous wine that flatters the palate from beginning to end. Smells plush, brimming with currants and fancy oak trimmings, and turns lush and complex with fruit in the mouth. Best to drink it soon, in the fullness of youth.
