Very fine on the nose, with an early sweet baking spice note followed by crisp blackcurrant fruit, lovely dried herb and almost floral nuances. On the palate, this is a bit reserved with a slightly cool and compressed feel, but lovely balance that shows real richness of ripe fruit. There’s no baby fat here, it’s all sleek, cool and pretty Cabernet fruit in the black cherry/blackcurrant end of the register, bringing a suggestion of herbaceousness to the moderately long finish. 91 points

Very fine nose with lovely herbal and savory aromas accenting the sweet baking spice nose that is slightly cool and compressed. There is lovely balance on the palate, with real richness of ripe fruit, and no baby fat which the 2007 still retains. The feeling here is cool and pretty Cabernet fruit, bringing along that suggestion of herbaceousness from the nose, as it yields to a ripe fruit-driven finish. Needs a bit of time but this has everything in the right place. 92pts

This Cab shows rich, ripe fleshy tannins. wonderful fruit on the mouth with beautiful black fruit and tabacco and saddle. the Cabernet finishes long with balanced tannins and great cedar that finishes dry. I serve it by the glass at The Capital Grille in Costa Mesa, Ca. and it pairs great with the Porchini Rubbed Delmonico.

Dark, rich and extracted, this wine has aromas of cassis, black cherry and currants. Balanced oak nuances add both a sweetness and roundness to this aromatic and powerful wine. Extraordinarily complex, while amazingly rich and smooth in the mouth, this wine offers superb richness and balance, and builds in intensity.

A rich, robust, somewhat rangy style, offering loamy earth, dried berry, sage, cedar and anise flavors. Full-bodied and complete, ending with a raspberry-cranberry edge and firm tannins. Best from 2012 through 2019.

A fine Cabernet from this veteran producer, elegant and stylish. Not one of your fruit bombs, it shows modulated blackberry, currant and herb flavors, leading to a long, spicy finish. Really distinguished, although itandrsquo;s not an ager. Contains a splash of Syrah and Petite Sirah for complexity and color.
