Hestan Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2003

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Advocate #162 (Dec 2005) Performing even better than it did from cask, the 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon (288 cases of 100% Cabernet Sauvignon made by up-and-coming winemaker Mark Herold for proprietors Stanley and Helen Cheng) looks to be sensational. Its inky/blue/purple color is followed by an explosive nose of blueberry liqueur intermixed with white chocolate and acacia flowers. Full-bodied, opulent, and dense with high but sweet levels of tannin, marvelous purity, and a layered finish that lasts for 40+ seconds, this superb 2003 can be drunk young or cellared for two decades. with so few cases produced and such high ratings, we suggest you get a hold of this one- it won't be around for long!

Beautiful wine. Smooth finish but with big flavors, similar to Frank Family, but with a slightly better texture.
