Nice dark berry aromas, hints of black licorice, vanilla and coffee tones from the toasted oak. The tannin structure is very fine and well balanced.
93 points, “Cellar Selection,” Wine Enthusiast (December 1, 2010): “Deeply scented, a big, powerhouse Cabernet grown on the Rutherford bench. It’s dense, chewy and meaty, showing blackberry jam, blueberry, chocolate and sweet smoky oak. The tannins are thick and furry, as befits such a young, ageable wine…”
Enjoy this classy Cabernet with many foods, including roast turkey, grilled meats of any kind, pizza, Italian cuisine, spicy sausage and cheddar cheese.
