91(+?)? Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 2011

(93% from To-Kalon fruit):  Good bright medium ruby.  Aromatic, essence-of-Oakville nose offers black raspberry, cassis, loam, spices, licorice and menthol.  Lush but fresh and delineated, with a medicinal minty quality to the cassis and graphite flavors.  A bit tough for a 2008, but there's also good underlying sweetness and length here.  The wine's serious tannic structure calls for a few years of patience.  Will this fatten up in bottle?

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...
