More structured, tannic and dense, the 1996m Cabernet Sauvignon requires patience. Most readers will prefer to drink the 1995 or 1997 than the more backward 1996. The 1996 reveals a saturated ruby/purple color, low acidity and plenty of tannin and muscle in the brawny finish. Anticipated maturity: 2000ndash;2015.

Firm, intense, concentrated and well-structured, with tight dried currant, cedar, dried herb and sage flavors. Full-bodied, gaining depth and range on the finish before the tannins take hold. Best from 2011 through 2020. 20,000 cases made. -JL The 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa (20,000 cases produced) may be the finest regular cuvee produced here in nearly two decades. Its dense ruby/purple hue is followed by an opulent bouquet of cassis, blue fruits, crushed rocks, and floral undertones. Pure, juicy, deep, medium to full-bodied, and loaded, this 2007 should drink beautifully young, yet keep for 15-20+ years. Good deep ruby-red. Sweet, open aromas of ripe plum and currant complemented by chocolatey oak. In a fat, lush style, showing the sweetness of the vintage in spades. Not a particularly gripping wine but one that should give considerable early pleasure. The substantial tannins are dusty and fine. This is a rich, complicated Cabernet Sauvignon, brimming with ripe, ou...

Full black-currant aromas with some briar and dust. Blackberry fruit on the palate, but most of all lots of charred oak manifested as coffee and bitter chocolate. In golf, this would be a middle-of-the-fairway drive, but without the distance. Itrsquo;s fresh and well made.

AS for the 20,000+ cases of Joseph Phelps Cabernet Sauvignon, the 1997 is excellent. While not as open-knit and expressive as their Merlot, it is well-made, with attractive, cedary, tobacco, and black currant fruit, excellent color saturation, a spicy, sweet mid-palate, and soft tannin in its medium to full-bodied finish. It can be drunk now, or cellared for 12ndash;15 years.

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. 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.

The potentially outstanding 1999 Cabernet Sauvignon reveals a saturated purple color, exceptional ripeness, and sweet black currant aromas and flavors intermixed with licorice, smoke, and minerals. Medium to full-bodied, dense, and multilayered, this impressive Cabernet should drink well for 10ndash;15 years.

Generous black currant and blackberry flavors fill this juicy cabernet. It's lush and easy to enjoy on release, the gentle tannins ready to meld with rare prime rib.
