Fantastic. Lively nose - just jumps out of the glass. Dense and flavorful. Fruity and earthy, with a long peppery finish. Probably should decant if drinking now.

[Pasta, pesto, tomatoes] Didnt take detailed notes, but very sweet tannins most prominent, black fruit, chocolate, saddleleather. Other seem enthusiastic now, but I would put this away for at least 2 years. If you are going to drink give it at least 2 hours.

The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon comes across as luscious and beautifully balanced. Bright red fruit, flowers and spices are some of the notes that flow from the glass in this seductive, radiant Cabernet Sauvignon. The supple, silky finish is impossible t...

The 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon reveals a Pontet-Canet-like creme de cassis purity allied with notions of licorice, new wood, and impressive structure. Its purity, texture, aromatics, and overall equilibrium result in a gorgeous wine that should hit its prime in another 2ndash;3 years, and last for 15 or more years.

I would love to taste the spectacular 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon in a blind tasting with recent vintages of the famed Pauillac, Pontet-Canet. After spending 16 months in 100% new French oak, it offers an opaque purple color along with classic notes of creme de cassis intermixed with subtle burning ember, charcoal and oak aromas. The glorious perfume is accompanied by a full-bodied, stunningly concentrated, multilayered wine with spectacular length as well as a silky personality. It can be drunk now or cellared for two decades or more. Itrsquo;s a tour de force!

The 2004 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa exhibits an opaque purple color as well as beautiful aromas of creme de cassis, flowers, licorice, and a hint of barbecue spice, medium to full body, silky tannin, adequate acidity, and well-integrated toasty oak. Enjoy this lovely Cabernet over the next 10ndash;15 years.

The 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon is a dead-ringer for a Napa version of the famed Pauillac, Pontet-Canet. Charcoal, creme de cassis, unsmoked cigar tobacco, and earthy characteristics are present in its fragrant bouquet. It possesses sweet tannin, a full-bodied mouthfeel, and immediate accessibility, although it can be cellared for 15 more years.

The classic 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon tastes like proprietor Alfred Tesseronrsquo;s over-achieving 5th growth Pauillac, Chateau Pontet Canet moved to Napa. Bursting with creme de cassis, flower, lead pencil, and spice characteristics, it is a dense, pure, full-bodied wine with a terrific texture. This is a gorgeously harmonious, seamless Cabernet Sauvignon with awesome concentration as well as aging potential. Drink it now and over the next 25 years.

The 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon exhibits a dense purple color along with a lovely perfume of burning charcoal embers and exceptionally pure creme de cassis fruit. Full-bodied with sweet tannin, stunning purity, a layered mouthfeel, and a long finish, it is an excellent Cabernet available at a bargain basement price by Napa Valley standards. Moreover, it should drink well for 15+ years.
