One of the better years. I prefer the 2002, but my wife thinks the 2001 is a bit smoother...

Very good wine drinking very well right now but I believe it can still age for 2-5 more years till peak.

The 2001 Cabernet Sauvignon Cherryblock 100th Anniversary is a blend of 76% Cabernet Sauvignon, and the rest mostly Merlot with a touch of Malbec; there are 2,000 cases of this impressive effort. Deep ruby/purple with a gloriously pure nose of kirsch, black currants, vanilla, and earth, it remains tightly knit, but is rich and medium to full-bodied with moderately high tannin balanced by equally impressive concentration. This beauty is best cellared for another 2-3 years. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2020. Impressive!

Smoky, chocolate fudge-like aromas intermixed with sweet black cherry (after all, it is called "Cherry Block"), blackberry, charcoal and espresso scents jump from the glass of this complex, perfumed Cabernet. It possesses a dark ruby/purple color, silky, supple tannins, beautiful balance and a full-bodied mouthfeel as well as finish. Still young, but approachable and drinkable, it has another 15-20 years of longevity ahead of it. However, owners should not hesitate to drink it as it is revealing lots of complexity and interest.

Firmly tannic and tightly wound, this is a rich, earthy, concentrated wine, with complex currant, black cherry, anise, sage and cedary notes. Well-focused, it is a mouthful of wine that should reward short-term cellaring. Best from 2003 through 2010.

This wine strikes an excellent balance between ripe, grapey, plum and currant flavors, and the spicy, toasty oak adds a wonderful dimension. Intense and concentrated, sharply focused and long and complex on the finish, where the fruit and wood work in harmony. Best from 2005 through 2012.

This beautifully made, elegant, Bordeaux-inspired offering, 2,570-case cuvée, exhibits a dark ruby/purple color followed by a gorgeous bouquet of black cherries, currants, and earth aromas. The wine is nicely-textured, restrained, authoritatively rich, and persistent on the palate, with noticeable tannin to be resolved. It requires 2-3 years of cellaring. Anticipated maturity: 2005-2017.

A lovely Cabernet. It comes from the winery's vineyard in the far southern part of the valley, not far from the Carneros line. The wine is medium-bodied, dry, silky and elegantly tannic, with complex cherry, currant, cola and cedar flavors. Should develop bottle complexity over the next 6-8 years.

Chocolaty and spicy, loaded with cinnamon and anise, and backed by sturdy plum-flavored fruit. The mouthfeel is creamy and rich; the finish, long and oaky.

Winemaker's Notes:

Winemaker’s Notes With a very dark garnet color, this wine offers ripe, opulent black cherry fruit, for which our Sonoma County Cabs are known. The cooler vintage provided us a wine with finesse, elegance and intoxicating aromatics, akin to a Bordeaux from the Medoc. The nose is filled with brown sugar and blackberry aromas topped with coconut and vanilla from the oak regime. The blackberry continues on the palate and carries through to the finish. This wine will definitely improve with age; however, it is incredibly “drinkable” now and hints at being an earlier maturing wine. Technical Data Appellation Sonoma County Composition 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Merlot, 6% Cabernet Franc, 5% Zinfandel Cooperage Aged 12 months in mostly American oak barrels Alcohol 13.5% TA 0.54 g/100ml pH 3.78
