(100% cabernet sauvignon, from vineyards in Calistoga and Oakville): Good full medium ruby. Expressive, slightly high-toned aromas of blueberry, licorice pastille, mocha, coffee, black olive, minerals and crushed rock. Youthfully tight but densely packed and serious, with a piquant vein of peppery acidity enlivening the concentrated flavors of currant, minerals and spices. Finishes with outstanding rising length and a firm spine of acids and harmonious tannins. Lay this one down. I significantly underrated this wine from barrel a year ago, when it came across as greener.
