I love this wine. It's not showing as well as the last time, though that may be due to a cork issue, but it's still exactly what I look for in California Cabernet. The nose lacks some intensity but reveals a nice core of soil, pencil led oak and subtle green herbs and even a suggestion of chili. On the palate this is light and bright with lovely freshness to the black raspberry, black currant fruit. the tannins are balanced but stiff and a touch dry, but backed up with plenty of ripe fruit. the acidity is well integrated and carries the wine through the finish where it really brightens up and adds a bit of porcini and a nice subtle blend of wood spice and herbs. Man this is well made and just perfectly sized. 92pts.

medium dark garnet, medium plus body, full and slightly rough tannin, could use a bit more acidity and aromatic intensity (but suspect maybe I just have nose issues today) pencil lead, beef jerky, blackcurrant. Enjoyable now.

Smells like a bright, ripe fruit bomb. In the mouth it's not quite as full-bodied as I was expecting - starts with a lean acidity and lots of red cherry. Very slight oak and a nicely complex finish. No complaints here.

Very rich, kind of dark chocolate and tobacco aroma. The mouth is very acidic, and a bit tannic. The body and length are really good. If you like chocolate or cigars, give this a shot.

First, there's the backyard: freshly shoveled soil, clips of St. Augustine, and blackberries, ripening, collecting dust in the sun. Fat, rich, dark fruit and a bit of chocolate in the mouth.

Light purple color. Aromatic nose of clove, vanilla, and blackberry pie. Medium weight in the mouth with a broad entry that is balanced with a fantastic streak of acidity that carries through seamlessly along the mid-palate. Enough tannin in this wine to show its youth, but I think this is going to age nicely. Very nice finish. Every wine I've tasted from Folio (Michael Mondavi family) has a common theme of elegance and "old school" Napa winemaking.

Rich, sophisticated and earthy, with concentrated dark berry and cassis aromas, beautifully balanced flavors of dried fruit and currants, and ripe, evolved tannins expressive of Rutherford dust. Its long, smooth finish marries rich fruit with savory, toasted oak tones.


Winemaker's Notes:

Our Cabernet Sauvignon from Oso Vineyard is beautifully balanced, with a supple, elegant texture and lush ripe fruit flavors of cherry, blackberry, and subtle oak nuances of chocolate, toffee, and toasted vanilla. From the mountain fruit, the wine extracts intense flavors, a firm structure, and excellent aging potential.
