What a treat. this is the quintessence of Oakville Cab, with an impressively firm structure, ripe tannins, smooth, supple mouthfeel and long, spicy finish. and what fruit! Scads of rich cassis, chocolate and oak, yet thoroughly dry. Drink now through 2012.
The 1992 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate is a worthy successor to the blockbuster 1990 and 1991. Huge, sweet aromas of black fruits, spices, and oak are followed by a wine with great fruit extraction, full body, layers of richness, and that multidimensional, layered feel that this producer routinely obtains. The flattering personality of the 1992 has turned out a more unctuous and voluptuous wine than even the 1991 or 1990. Moreover, it will have 15+ years of aging potential.
A potent wine, dark, rich and concentrated, with a tight, intense, sharply focused beam of spicy currant, black cherry, blackberry and boysenberry fruit that unfolds gracefully, revealing extra facets of depth and complexity. Best from 2004 through 2012.
(Barrel tasting) A ripe, grapey sample, offering pure currant and blackberry fruit and little in the way of oak at this stage. Tannins sneak up on the finish. Shows depth and complexity.
The dark ruby/purple-colored, medium-bodied, stylish 2000 Cabernet Sauvignon offers sweet, loamy, earthy notes along with pure cassis, licorice, and spice box. It is best consumed over the next decade.
Wonderful fruit purity, with floral, plum, grapey currant and black cherry, well-focused, with firm tannins.
