First Taste - Poured through an aerator, I was immediately confused by the bouquet. Overwhelming musty, basement smell, thought "corked" immediately. But then it opened up more and some oak rolled out with some other hints, including vanilla that barely came out. Color - Deep blackberry color. Taste, typical Cab Sav yet lacking the tannins. Not silky tannins but very light. I thought it was quite balanced and slightly acidic. Tart. I am going to give this one a day two try, but not a fan at first taste. WOW. After recorking and resting til the next time this wine really came into its own. The bouquet was alive and fruity, Black Currants jumped out onto the palette and the tannins were close to perfect. After reading other reviews of products of this vineyard I feel better now, this is just a wine you do not want to open and pour.

Rating 87 point. Very firm structure and good nose. This wine needs more time to develop. Keep and enjoy in 3 years. Tasted again in 2013 and now a rating of 90. Wine has developed and is much more even in taste with some tar like aromas and elegant nose. A joy to drink now.

Very fruit forward, almost a little jammy, New World style Cabernet Sauvignon. I tasted black currant and maybe some blackberry in the mix.

Medium-bodied and fruit forward with ripe well structured tannins

Dunkles Granatrot, üppiger Duft von Beeren, Pflaumen und Schokolade. Angenehmes Tannin.

Sweet and round, with plum and berry fruit kissed by judicious vanilla. Nice easy finish lets an herb hint peek out. Drink now.

Good dark fruit - currant, plum and raisin - with coffee and herb notes and a coating of bittersweet chocolate. Burly for a Merlot, but I like its guts. Drink now through 2005.

Polished and smooth, this well-integrated red balances black cherry, blackberry, tobacco and light herbal flavors. It has harmony and finesse. Drink now through 2003.
