Ripe, vivid aromatics of currant, florals and hazelnut-scented oak. Sleek yet muscular package with rich intense tannins all in balance. Sweet fruit and oak on the nose, nearly pinot scented. Great structure and balance between bold tannin and extremely ripe fruit. - Tasted at Marché Bacchus 4/24/10

Deep, saturated ruby-red. Superripe plum, currant, iron, mocha and minerals on the complex nose. Dense, sweet and fine-grained, with plush flavors of plum, mocha and leather. Very suave and mouthfilling cabernet, offering an impression of stuffing without weight. Finishes with fine, broad tannins and excellent length. This wine continued to expand and gain in sweetness with aeration, and I would not be at all surprised if it merited an even higher score five or six years down the road.

No doubt because of its unusual micro-climate, this winery produced a better 2003 than 2002 Cabernet Sauvignon. The brilliant 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon (a 100% Cabernet Sauvignon aged in 50% new French oak) boasts a dense purple color as well as a big, sweet nose of scorched earth, creme de cassis, licorice, spice, and a roasted meat-like character. Full-bodied, opulent, and rich, with tremendous intensity, huge texture, exceptional balance, and sweet tannin, this stunning Cabernet will be drinkable reasonably early in life (a rarity for a Seavey Cabernet Sauvignon), but should easily last 15-20 years.

Dense and chewy, with ripe, rich tannins holding sway over the earthy currant, sage and herbal notes. It finishes with creamy, mocha-scented oak, which gives it an added dimension. Best from 2006 through 2012.

The blockbuster 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon ranks alongside the top wines of the vintage. The final blend was 95% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Petit Verdot, and 996 cases were produced. A dense purple color is accompanied by a sweet bouquet of scorched earth, creme de cassis, coffee beans, licorice, and roasted meats. This sensational, full-bodied, dense 2003 comes across like a La Mission Haut-Brion from a ripe, powerful vintage. It should age beautifully for 20-25 years.

Ripe and juicy, with vivid blackberry and wild berry fruit that's lively and complex, keeping a tight focus on the fruit and ending with a mix of fresh earth, herb and mineral flavors that add to its flavor dimensions. Drink now through 2013.

Firm and structured, with ripe, vivid, aromatic currant, floral, fresh earth, spice and hazelnut-scented oak. Everything folds together, in a sleek yet muscular package that offers rich, intense tannins, but also excellent balance. Best from 2009 through 2018.

A potential super-star in the making is the 2001 Cabernet Sauvignon. It gets my vote as the finest wine made at this estate since the 1997, and it should have the longevity of their monumental 1991. Sadly, only 1,500 cases were produced from a blend of 95% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Petit Verdot. It should be called a vin de garde (a wine for aging) as it is a tightly-knit, powerful, enormously-endowed offering with huge tannin, monster extract, and rich, intense black currant, tar, blackberries, loamy soil, and licorice flavors. Closed, broodingly rich, and large-scaled, this 2001 possesses nearly unlimited upside potential, but patience will be a virtue. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2028.

October 15, 2007 JLWINE ADVOCATE REVIEW: 94 POINTS There are 905 cases of the 2004 Cabernet Sauvignon (100% Cabernet Sauvignon). Full-bodied and powerful with velvety tannin, fabulous intensity, and stunning aromas of smoked herbs, charcoal embers, chocolate, creme de cassis, and minerals, it is a rich, voluptuously textured wine that admirably hides its serious tannin levels. It will unquestionably keep for two decades or more. WA # , #168 (Dec 2006) Drink 2006 - 2026 Robert ParkerSEAVEY CABERNET SAUVIGNON ESTATE NAPA VALLEY 2004
