A touch of woody sweetness adds a fruity edge to the nose but notes of earth, black spice, and green peppercorns add detail to the core of toasty spices and dark, lightly fudgy black currant fruit. Surprisingly refined on entry this is a deceptive wine, with a tight core of focused fruit but enough remaining babyfat and wood spice to allow one to overlook the depth here. The tannins are very well managed and feather out nicely on the finish allowing the earthy red fruit to assume control. This needs a bit of time to unfold but already exhibits lovely balance and depth of fruit. 92pts

A real mouthful. An ultraripe, racy, herbaceous style that offers lots of dill and bell pepper shading to the jammy plum and wild berry flavors. Finishes with a good dose of heat and tannins. Best from 2002 through 2012. 850 cases made. Wine Spectator. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 1997 Cornerstone Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon Black Sears Vineyard 750ml

...Notes of new saddle leather, tree bark, and red and black currants emerge from this opaque purple-colored wine. Gritty tannin initially causes concern, but as the wine sits in the glass and on the palate, its substantial richness and powerful, ful... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate.
