Notes on the Hagen Heights Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2003 : WINE ENTHUSIAST REVIEW: 91 POINTS A very good Napa Cab. Rich and ripe in blackberry, cassis, cherry and new oak flavors, it's dry and balanced, with firm, sweet tannins and a nice bite of acidity. Wine Enthusiast July 2007WINEMAKER NOTES: The Hagen Heights 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon is a worthy successor to their fabulous inaugural 2002 vintage wine. The 2003 offers a stunning deep ruby color. At first the aromas are slightly reticent, but within moments the wine opens up to display rich dark fruit notes of blackberry, cherry and plum, along with fragrant wood spice. With a few more minutes in the glass, the wine's gorgeous fruit comes to the forefront and appears deeper and riper. Like the 2002, this is stylish Napa Cabernet without the typical jammy character that marks some of the Cabernet from the warmer northern part of the valley. Nonetheless the 2003 is quite full-bodied and mouth filling - even more so than the 2002. The tannins are strong (as is typical for Cabernet) yet supple in the nature and beautifully integrated with the concentrated fruit flavors.All in all, this is another great wine to drink now or to stow away in the cellar for further improvement over the next 5-8 years. In addition, it will easily hold another 10 years beyond that.HAGEN HEIGHTS NAPA VALLEY CABERNET SAUVIGNON 2003
