Sawyer Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon Rutherford 2001

Member Review by jtryka:

The wine was an inky purple in the glass, with a good bit of ruby toward the edges of the glass. The nose was just lovely, with complex aromas of leather, cedar, anise, dried spice, and just a hint of ripe fruit. The taste was just marvelous, with some dried fruit flavor up front, that quickly gave way to some wonderful earthy spice notes midpalate. The finish was long and spectacularly dry, with well rounded tannins supporting the velvety mouthfeel and complexity on the finish that makes this wine an ideal afternoon sipper.
