91 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 2003

($110; includes 5% petit verdot) Full ruby-red. Cassis, black cherry, plum, mocha and pipe tobacco on the nose. Big, broad and velvety, with excellent volume and richness for the vintage. Flavors of cassis, Valrhona chocolate and sweet oak spices. Maintains its focus on the back end, which features thick but broad tannins and excellent length. Impressive California cabernet. Also tasted: 2000 Old Vine Cuvee Napa Valley, 2000 Sangiovese Napa Valley, 2000 Merlot Napa Valley.

Cabernet Sauvignon

Cabernet Sauvignon built its reputation on Bordeaux's Left Bank. Here, in the district of Medoc, the varietal is the key component of blended wines that also may include some Merlot and Cabernet Franc, and even Malbec and Petit Verdot. Moving slightly south, Cabernet Sauvignon meets Merlot in roughly equal proportions in the red wines of Graves. In both of these Bordeaux regions, the top bottles...
