Andrew Geoffrey Cabernet Sauvignon 2001
|Appellation||Diamond Mountain District|
Wine EnthusiastDiamond Mountain District Cabs always are very tannic, and so is this one, but it should reward cellaring. It's well-oaked, with balancing acids and a tremendous core of blackberry and currant fruit that penetrates the palate and lasts through the finish. Combines power and finesse. Drink now-2015.
Wine SpectatorFirm, dark, rich and concentrated, with intense, chewy tannins that match up well with layers of earthy currant, coffee, mint, blackberry, cedar, anise and spice. This is a big, expressive, intense wine that can be enjoyed now and should improve for the next several years. But the tannins may be an issue, so if you buy a few bottles, taste one early to judge for yourself. Best from 2005 through 2012. 1,367 cases made.
