This wine's classic Cabernet aromas and flavors of cassis and black fruits have intriguing dried herb and spice notes. On the palate, jammy fruit leads to firm, noble tannins before a long finish. Pairs well with meats, poultry, and game.

Wine AdvocateThis 100% Cabernet Sauvignon aged 16 months in French oak exhibits a dense ruby/purple color in addition to a classic Cabernet nose of cedar, cigar smoke, spice, black currants, and new oak. Although it borders on being internationally-styled, there is no doubting its wealth of fruit, impeccable harmony, sweet tannin, and long finish. Anticipated maturity: 2006-2016.

Wine Spectator Very pretty aromas of blackberries, plums and smoke. Full-bodied, with fine, silky tannins and a fruity, vanilla and toasted oak aftertaste, plus hints of ripe berries. A tad too much new wood, but enticing. Best after 2004. 6,000 cases made.
