Color: Opaque, dark ruby deepening to an almost purple hue. Aromas: Immediate, powerful aromas of blackberries and wild berries, promising highly extracted fruit, followed by subtler notes of exotic spices. Flavors/texture: Deep, dark flavors of black currants, black cherries and juicy, lushly ripe blackberries envelop the palate, offering a core of fruit essence that persists from first sip to finish. Notes of toasty oak are very harmoniously integrated with the fruit. The texture is dense and elegant at the same time. Suggestions of creamy vanilla and exotic spice flavors emerge on the long, expansive finish. The wine has great natural balance, calling the taster back for another sip.

Wine EnthusiastA bright-edged wine, redolent of Bing cherry, raspberry, blackberry, anise, spice, cedar and herb flavors. Tannins are powdery, firm and ripe. They frame the wine in a toasty embrace, ending with a plush finish. Consistently a benchmark from the heartland of California Cabernet.

Wine SpectatorRichly flavored and beautifully crafted, with well-defined currant, cassis, blackberry and plummy Cabernet flavors that are mouthcoating, finishing with intricate coffee, mocha and pencil lead flavors. Big, ripe tannins are firm but polished. Best from 2004 through 2012. 2,600 cases made.
