Expert Reviews

92-95 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 1999

Saturated deep ruby. Pungent, superripe aromas of cassis, blueberry, minerals and brown spices. A step up in flavor intensity and density. Lovely combination of sweet fruit and solid acid/tannin backbone. Quite firm and extremely long on the aftertaste. An outstanding early showing for this wine.

This is the finest red wine I have ever tasted. Expensive, yes , but worth it for a very special occasion.

Dark ruby in color with currant, plum and spice in aromas. Medium to full-bodied with complex and long finish. The tannins is elegant and silky. Just too pricey ($125)!

Bright ruby color, full of currant touch, and fresh fruit on the nose. (89-90)

Varietal Image
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.
