A fabulous wine, despite it's youth. More tannic than I remember the '07 vintage being, which I enjoyed. Very balanced, coats your entire palette and leaves great acidic fruit at the back of your mouth. Can't wait to taste in five to six years. Planning on vertical tasting it vs. the '06 and the '07.
Excellent wine. Let it breathe for an hour to two hours and you'll be blown away.
Elegant, well structured, good complexity nice tannnis. Drinkable now, but should get even better with age. Open/decant for several hours. Surpasses many other belnds and cabs in the price range.
[PJW] better than the recent 01s. Livelier fruity 89
Have had this at least 4 times. Loved it the first. Liked it less each time since. This time found it a little green lacking fruit, uninspiring.

Appearance: Dark ruby in the glass with a violet rimAroma: An alluring, rich mix of ripe black currants and berries faceted with vanilla, cinnamon and cocoa highlights.Palate: Full bodied, complex black fruit of lush currants, and cherry layered with licorice and vanilla spice with chocolate, roasted coffee, and tobacco. The finish is extremely long and complex, showing firm plush tannins that bring everything together making it easy to drink it now, but implying a great future. - WineryAppellation: Paso RoblesComposition: 94% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Cabernet Franc, 3% MerlotpH: 3.65Total Acidity: 0.67 g/100mlAlcohol: 15.5% by volume ** SOLD OUT **
Inky ruby. Impressively complex bouquet of cassis, cherry-cola, potpourri, graphite and Asian spices; lots going on here. Juicy, finely etched dark fruit flavors are sweetened by a suave vanillin oak quality and firmed by silky tannins. The spiciness carries through the long, seductively sweet finish. Showing very nicely today.
A deep ruby core. Gorgeous ripe raspberry and currant with soft oak notes of vanilla. A touch of roast coffee adds to the dazzling range of aromas. On the palate, layers of clean, direct fruit show themselves varyingly with each sip as flavors of black currant and brown spice intensifies.
Absolutely delicious, this blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (mostly), Cabernet Franc and Merlot is brimming with ripe and juicy currant, black cherry, wild berry, plum and anise flavors that are complex, deep and polished. Finishes long and flavorfully. Best from 2002 through 2012.
