I received this as a gift a few years back. I finally broke it out on Christmas day. I was pleasantly surprised. It was very good! Smooth. Lots of berry fruit. An incredible long finish. Perfect with prime rib and good friends.

Wine Spectator ReviewScents of red currant, red licorice, wild berry, sage and fresh earth fold together nicely in this rippe, intense, tightly wound young cabernet. Well-focused, deep and complex, with dry earthy tannins on the finish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Drink now through 2010.

Scents of red currant, red licorice, wild berry, sage and fresh earth fold together nicely in this ripe, intense, tightly wound young Cabernet. Well-focused, deep and complex, with dry, earthy tannins on the finish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Malbec, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Drink now through 2010.

Starts with tons of rich new oak in the aroma, showing the most inviting notes of cedar, cigar box and pencil lead that segue to the remarkable fruit. The attack is powerful, with a punch of cassis spreading broadly and deeply across the palate. With its sturdy, clean tannins, this beautiful wine displays classic power, elegance and balance.
