Strikes a fine balance between chewy currant, anise, blackberry and cedar scents. It firms up at midpalate and finishes with a long, rich aftertaste. Needs short-term cellaring. Best from 2005 through 2012.

Good full ruby. Aromas of black currant, chocolate, tobacco and mint. Sweeter and deeper than the 2000 Merlot, with chewier currant and tar flavors and better vinosity and cut. Here the tannins are more thoroughly buffered. Nicely balanced, fresh Cabernet.

Shows the deft Phelps tough in the softly complex texture whose tannins are just as velvety as they come, and the ripe, pure fruit. The blackberry, cassis and red cherry flavors are enriched with vanilla and toast from oak. Drink this fine Cabernet now through 2008.

Good ruby-red. Pure but subdued nose hints at blackberry and cassis. High-pitched, juicy and concentrated, with very primary flavors of black fruits and eucalyptus. Firm and persistent on the end. More structured than the 2003 example.

A dense, layered wine, marked by pure cassis flavors. Picks up intensity in the middle palate, where it turns rich and compelling. Harmony and elegance, not to mention age ability, mark this expression of Cabernet.

The 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon is an elegant, dark ruby-hued medium-bodied effort offering aromas of earth, berry fruit, herbs, and spice. It reflects this vintage, which has produced very good Cabernets, although they have not reached the pinnacles of the finest 2002s and 2001s.

The 1994 Cabernet Sauvignon is soft, round, and generous, with layers of jammy black fruits and spice. It is fat, fleshy, and full, with low acidity.

Winemaker's Notes:

The balanced 2007 growing season allowed for even ripening throughout each of our Cabernet vineyards. Early in the fermentation the berries revealed concentrated fruit forward flavors and excellent color indicating the high quality of the 2007 vintage.

Tasting Notes:

The wine is deeply pigmented and has aromatics of perfectly ripe blackberries, plum, notes of dark chocolate, licorice and spice. The palate is refined and has exceptional texture and length.
