David Ramey has created an expressive, rich Cabernet from the Larkmead vineyard, considered by many to be Napa's answer to Pauillac. This wine is packed with crème de cassis flavors and velvet tannins.

This may not be especially ageable because itandrsquo;s so soft and forward. But for current drinking and a few years out, it rewards for a wealth of flavor and richness. The wine has the blackberry marmalade, raspberry tart, milk chocolate truffle, cappuccino and new oaky flavors that many very ripe California reds show, but its pedigree is in the tannic structure. Best now through 2010.

Intense, vibrant and focused, with spicy currant and blackberry fruit that's well-defined, complex and supple-textured. Yet this has the desired backbone of acidity and earthy tannins. Decant. Best from 2008 through 2013.

Saturated bright ruby. Higher-pitched, more primary aromas of blackberry, blueberry, violet, minerals, bitter chocolate and graphite. Wonderfully sweet and suave in the mouth, with good energy and focus. This, too, is carrying 15+% alcohol, but maintains its balance nicely. The tannins here are powerful but refined. Offers very strong potential. (A retaste of the 2001s showed that the '01 version of this wine was likewise sappier and more mineral-driven than the Diamond Mountain bottling, which showed a thicker texture and a note of smoked meat.)

The compelling 2001 Jericho Canyon Vineyard Proprietary Red is a blend of 45% Cabernet Sauvignon, 36% Merlot, and 19% Cabernet Franc from a vineyard near Calistoga. This superb effort boasts a saturated purple color along with an extraordinary smoky nose revealing scents of roasted coffee, melted licorice, graphite, and copious amounts of blackberry and cassis liqueur. The palate is full-bodied, with layers of flavor, tremendous purity, high tannin, and impeccable richness. For reasons that I could not fathom, this offering brought to my mind some of the legendary Mayacamas Cabernet Sauvignons (i.e., the 1968, 1970, 1973, and 1974). Anticipated maturity: 2008-2025.

Dark purple. Remarkably spicy and vibrant on the nose, with powerful cassis, kirsch, espresso and rose pastille aromas and a subtle iron note. Intense red and dark fruit flavors are powered by vibrant minerality and framed by fine but solid tannins. Exotic spice notes come up on the long, stunningly sweet finish. andldquo;These vines are just coming into their majority,andrdquo; Ramey said.

Firm, rich and concentrated, with ripe blueberry, currant and black cherry fruit thatandrsquo;s fleshy and well-centered, offering subtle flavor nuances of nutmeg, anise and dried berry. Best from 2010 through 2016.
