92 Points | International Wine Cellar , March/April 2009

($80; includes 3% cabernet franc) Inky ruby. Expansive, intensely perfumed bouquet of dark berries, cherry pit, candied licorice and sexy oak spices. Broad, gently chewy cassis and bitter cherry flavors reach every nook and cranny of the palate, picking up an exotic violet pastille quality on the back end. Gains power on the finish, which features strong anise, tobacco and lead pencil qualities. Serious and in need of cellaring.

OMG, this Cab is beyond belief! Dark, soft & full of flavor! One of THE best reds I've ever had! And the finish is over the top. Compare this cab to ones costing well over $100.00. My first exposure was to a 2004 vintage & I just can't quit buying this cab! (Excellent for special occassions when you want to impress!).

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...
