Lots of brawn now, so let it harmonize fully with short-term cellaring. Best from 2003 through 2005. Read more

The nose has smoke, seaweed/peat bog and currant with a palate of black cherry, currant and some smokiness. There is an interesting herbal undertone. It seems a bit young and I am assuming it will get better with time. Try to decant this for at least an hour before enjoying

The minty blackberry-scented 2001 Cabernet Sauvignon has a personality that, while possessing admirable qualities, is tightly wound and ungiving. Drink it over the next 5 years.

Bright ruby-red. Blackcurrant and graphite on the nose. Sweeter and softer than the 2003 on entry, then more structured on the back half, but with a lovely light touch. Bitter cherry and spice flavors seem more vibrant than those of the 2003. Finishes with very good length.

A ripe, round, friendly style, with dark plum and cassis fruit wrapped inside a toasty mocha note. Drink now.

Forward and juicy, with lots of raspberry and boysenberry flavor backed by toast and mineral hints. Fruit-filled finish. Drink now.

Winemaker's Notes:

Intense, dark ruby color with enticing aromas of ripe, black plums and black currants. The richly textured plum and currant flavors are joined by accents of dark chocolate and some vanilla-scented oak. The ripe, vibrant tannins give the wine beautiful structure and an amazingly long finish. This is a big wine for just a little money. Drink it now or over the next few years to enjoy the fruit flavors at their best. It will pair well with traditional Cabernet-friendly foods like grilled or roasted meats.
