89 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - January/February 2011

($18) Deep red-ruby. Reticent redcurrant and pepper aromas are complicated by a rocky nuance and a suggestion of dried fruits. Sweet, concentrated and minerally, with the note of dried currant following through in the mouth. Finishes with building, dusty tannins.

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.
