Deep ruby-purple cast. Moderately full-bodied. Balanced acidity. Moderately extracted. Mildly tannic. Minerals, cassis. Aromatic and elegant, with an emphasis on terroir. Lean and minerally, with exceptional balance and finesse. Fine grip and intensity.

Dark and intense but not fully ripe, leaving it with cedary, earthy and mushroomy flavors and just glimpses of moderately ripe currant and cherry. Can still age, but it's not likely to improve; drink now through 2005.

Dark and sturdy, this is an immense, structured wine build for the long haul, delivering intense earthy currant, black cherry, mineral and sage flavors. Finishes with a solid wall of tannins, so hands of for now. Best from 2004 through 2018.

The 2000 Cabernet Sauvignon Volcanic Hill exhibits sweet fruit, and seems clean, but the tannin remains elevated, and it has a clipped, narrowly compressed mouthfeel as well as an astringent finish. The aromatics and flavor attack are impressive, but the finish is worrisome. This appears to be a gamble if aged beyond 5-6 years. This Cabernet is medium-bodied, but excessively tannic.

Tight, complex and backward, with grape, currant and berry-laced flavors, and firm tannins on the finish. Hold off until 2004 to 2006.

Intense and deeply concentrated with an abundance of ripe, rich, lively currant, black cherry and chocolately Cabernet flavors. Impeccable balance and length. Best form 2004 through 2012. Better than when tasted upon release, last year.
