Here's a dense, rich and concentrated young Cabernet, with tiers of currant, black cherry, anise and cedar. It's tightly wound now and will need several years of cellaring to open and soften, but be patient - all the elements are there Try around 2001. A blend: 91 percent Cabernet Sauvignon and 9 percent Cabernet Franc.

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.

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.

(Barrel tasting) Elegant, with fine balance; pretty oak, but not too dominant, allowing the spicy currant, vanilla, blackberry and cedar notes plenty of room. Firmly tannic.

The 2000 Cabernet Sauvignon may not be the powerhouse of some vintages, but it is an outstanding effort. The wine reveals copious quantities of cassis fruit, medium to full body, ripe, pure flavors, sweet tannin, and a long, heady finish, yet it does not possess the weight of the greatest vintages. Anticipated maturity: nowandndash;2015.

Bright ruby. Aromas of cassis, blackberry, bitter chocolate, licorice and shoe polish. Tightly wound and serious, with notes of minerals and shoe polish and a strong spine of acidity. Dense and bright but not yet expansive in the middle palate. Finis... Stephen Tanzer. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 2000 Dalla Valle Cabernet Sauvignon 750ml

Winemaker's Notes:

Charming, forward and approachable despite its youth. Ripe berries, mocha, toasted malt, incense and jasmine on the nose and palate. The sweet, high-toned nose is followed by a palate that nicely reflects the elegant refinement found year in and year out in our Cabernet.
