A Mediterranean style Cabernet in its lean feel and lifted aromatics, this takes a bold and sophisticated stance. The Cabernet Sauvignon tannins are hard and firm; the Cabernet Franc (45 percent) gives an acidity as earthy as a yellow heirloom tomato. It's tightly built, leaving room for food; and it should only grow more accomodating as it ages.

Co-winemakers Delia Viader and Charles Hendricks grow this supple blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (61 percent) and Franc (39) on a slope of Howell Mountain at 1,200 feet, but despite the mountain origins there's a soft feel here. It's plush in fruit, chocolate-graham in tannin and solidly built, a tight package even for all its soft touches, just at the peak of ripeness. Then there's an earthy, herbal character that lasts, a natural for aging at least eight to ten years from the vintage.

Lots of attractive, up-front fruit pleasure, with a core of black cherry and blackberry shaded by cedar, mocha, coffee and leather. Finishes with a sense of elegance and ripe, integrated tannins...

This elegant, Bordeaux-styled blend of 55% Cabernet Sauvignon and 45% Cabernet Franc boasts a deep ruby/purple-hued color as well as lovely aromas of smoke, plum, blueberries, and lead pencil shavings. Medium-bodied with sweet tannin, and a supple, approachable style, it should drink well for 10-12 years.

(Barrel tasting) A seductive, smooth and richly flavored wine, with layers of chocolate, black cherry, plum and spice. Long, complex aftertaste.

Ruby-red. Aromas of cassis, bitter cherry, green tobacco and licorice. Subtly sweet and full int he mouth, with a flavor of cocoa powder and sexy oak tones. Finishes with moderate tannins and a slight oaky dry edge.

Winemaker's Notes:

"Lotsof attractive, up-front fruit pleasure, with a core of black cherry andblackberry shaded by cedar, mocha, coffee and leather. Finishes with asense of elegance and ripe, integrated tannins. Best from 2004 through2012. 4,647 cases made." Score: 92The Wine Spectator, November 15th, 2002"A blend of63% cabernet sauvignon and 37% cabernet franc. Bright ruby-red.Aromatic nose combines currant, black raspberry, violet, dark chocolateand sexy oak tones. Soft and appealing, with moderate density and firmacidity. Finishes with dusty, light tannins and very good length andgrip. Slightly disjointed today, in need of a year or so to absorb itsacidity."90 pointsBy Stephen Tanzer, Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar, May/Jun 03
