87 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - November/December 2003

($13) Red-ruby. Currant, chocolate, smoky oak and a whiff of dill on the nose. Nicely layered, sweet and flavorful, with notes of currant, raspberry and chocolatey oak. Finishes with rather suave, chocolatey tannins. An excellent cabernet value.

This wine is tasty and quite approachable now for only being a 2000. At only $10 per bottle, it can easily work as your "everyday" red wine. Well-balanced and ripe for its age.

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.
