Smooth, rich and poloshed, with smoky, toasty, vanilla-scented oak adding a pleasing flavor dimension to the juicy core of black cherry, currant, anise, cedar, olive and herb. Drink now through 2008.

There are 7,500 cases of the outstanding 1999 Trilogy (a blend of 48% Cabernet Sauvignon, 42% Merlot, 6% Cabernet Franc, and 4% Malbec). Its elegance and finesse are nicely balanced by the wine's considerable richness. A dense ruby/purple color is followed by aromas of malt chocolate, cocoa, black cherries, currants, licorice, and earth. The wine is medium to full-bodied, pure, and ripe, with nicely integrated acidity and tannin. It will drink well for 12-15 years.

Extremely complex aromas of black currant, violets, oak, cedar and, yes, Rutherford dust. Very fine and complete, really classy, and already generous, with forward flavors. Velvety and complex, a pleasure to drink now but undoubtedly will age. A blend of 44% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot and 16% Cabernet Franc.

Deep ruby cast. Moderately full-bodied. Balanced acidity. Moderately extracted. Moderately oaked. Mildly tannic. Mint, red fruits, vanilla. Aromatic and harmonious with a lush, supple entry. Exquisitely made, with gentle extraction making for a velvety mouthfeel. Flavorful and generous through the lengthy finish.

The 2002 Trilogy has a touch of Petit Verdot added. It comes across as an elegant Napa version of a St.-Emilion. Displaying notes of dried herbs intermixed with fruitcake, spice box, red and black currants, as well as a notion of toasty oak, the wine is medium to full-bodied, measured, elegant, and French-like in style. It is not a blockbuster or over-the-top style of wine by any means, but one of restraint and elegance. Drink it over the next 10-12 years.

An impressive red blend, tightly structured, with a rich array of currant, black cherry, anise, cedar, tar and spice flavors of remarkable harmony and finesse, ending in a long, complex aftertaste. Best from 2000 through 2009. Contains Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc.

The vintage is exemplified beautifully by the 2005 Trilogy. This is a superb example of this proprietary red. Beautiful deep red, blue, and black fruits all intermingle with some crushed rock, lavender, and spice box in a very scented bouquet. In the mouth, it is layered, medium to full-bodied, with sweet tannin, gorgeous purity, and length. This is a stunning wine that should drink nicely for 15 or more years.
