An elegant, intensely concentrated wine with vibrant blackberry and black cherry fruit flavors. This wine exhibits rich, deep color and hints of mint, cedar, pepper and cassis.
Wine Spectator

Spicy, floral and perfumed Cabernet, a late-release from the '96 vintage, showing off earthy, cedary black cherry and blackberry flavors, and pretty, toast- and vanilla-scented notes. Unusually supple and polished version of this wine. Drink now through 2007. 4,300 cases made.

Weighty and supple, this continues the strong mid-90s run with its dark fruit, toast and herb nose. There's a touch of sweet sur-maturité (overripeness) here, but there's tangy acidity, too, to keep it together. It's deep and sweet, with blackberry, chocolate and herb flavors and a lengthy, smooth black pepper and anise-tinged finish. Drink now-2007, probably sooner rather than later.

The 1996 Cabernet Sauvignon Artist Series reveals rugged tannin in addition to medium to full body, an earthy rusticity, and dark fruits intermixed with foresty/underbrush notes. It will benefit from another 1-2 years of cellaring and keep for 10-15 years.
