Deliciously ripe and complex, overflowing with layers of exotic spice, mineral, sage, currant and blackberry, and finishing with a burst of flavor. Tannins are well-integrated. Drink now through 2010.

Black ruby to the rim. Vibrant aromas of blueberry, blackberry, black cherry, violet, espresso and cedary oak. Huge, lush and sweet; thick and mouthfilling, with very strong extract and firm supporting spine. A classic mountain-style fruit bomb, but with remarkably fine, sweet tannins. Very long and ripe on the aftertaste.

The outstanding 1998 Cabernet Sauvignon boasts a dark, ruby/purple color as well as surprising opulence for a wine from this vintage, admirable elegance, abundant black currant fruit, a dense, chewy, mid-palate, a fleshy texture, low acidity, and a tannic finish. It is a classic Cabernet Sauvignon with medium weight, as well as outstanding ripeness, richness, and balance. Drink it over the next 12 years.

A superlative vintage for Cabernet Sauvignon on the mountain created a phenomenally extracted wine with uncommon depth of ruby color. In fact, a common description is that it's darker than ink. This Cabernet literally gushes with ripe aromas of black cherries and blackberry, punctuated by mountain spiciness of mint and camphor. Broad and expansive on the midpalate, flavors of roasted espresso and layers of chocolate mingle with soft, supple tannins that pleasantly coat the mouth and betray the wine's youth at bottling. These flavors linger seemingly forever in the finish. The bottle aging potential for this Cabernet Sauvignon can be measured in decades.

Intense and vibrant, with a tight band of spicy currant, anise, mineral and sage. Young and backward, it needs time to soften and evolve. Best from 2004 through 2012.

The dense purple-colored, more angular-styled 1999 Cabernet Sauvignon exhibits aromas and flavors of licorice, toasty oak, and black currants. It possesses an austere, firm, sinewy personality as well as a tannic finish. Aging will bring out more flesh, so patience will be required in this excellent Cabernet. Anticipated maturity: 2006-2015.

Winemaker's Notes:

Cab, Cab, Cab! Isn’t this what we’ve been waiting for all summer? While all of our wines make people smile, some days it just seems all anybody wants is Cab. “Are you sure there aren’t just a few bottles of the 1999 left?” “Why can’t we buy the 2000 now? We promise we won’t drink it until fall!” Well, the drought is over and the 2000 Cabernet Sauvignon is another gangbuster – the ideal marriage of mountain grown fruit and meticulous winemaking. A long growing season of warm days and cool nights began with bud break on the first day of spring and gave us completely mature fruit with no sacrifice in acidity. Perfect pollination meant that each cluster ripened evenly. Dark enough to dip your fountain pen in, thoroughly ripe aromas seem to roar from the glass with the characters of black cherry and dark chocolate. Immense on the palate, the approachable tannins immediately flood your entire mouth with ripe berry flavor, punctuated with suggestions of cedar and espresso beans. The finish of this amazingly full-bodied. Cabernet continues to coat the palate with soft, chewy and flavorful tannins long after the glass is empty.
