Tasting Notes

Robert Parker 91

The 1996 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa (91% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Cabernet Franc, .5% Merlot, and 1.5% Petit Verdot) has a dark ruby/plum color and a gorgeous, complex nose of cedar, spice box, cherries, jammy plums and cassis. The wine is fleshy, medium to full-bodied, seductive, and filled with glycerin. The finish is all silk. This low acid, big, spicy, lavishly wooded, chewy wine should drink well for another 10-14 years. [Robert Parker, 12/01/2000]

Anticipated maturity: 2000-2014

Vinous 89-92

Deep ruby-red. Spicy aromas of cassis, black plum, black cherry, roasted nuts and shoe polish. Fat and sweet, with good depth of flavor and harmonious acidity. Thick but ripe tannins coat the tongue. [Stephen Tanzer, 01/05/1999]
