Lots of red currant black cherry and berry flavors are well-focused picking up a tasty dash of toasty mocha-laced oak. Firms up on the finish with solid ripe tannins. Decant. Best from 2008 through 2013. 1770 cases made. -JL

Made in a very ripe, almost in-your-face style, with flamboyant blackberry pie and cassis flavors veering into rum-soaked raisins and prunes. Defines size and power rather than elegance; a brawny, slightly hot wine that nonetheless is compellingly good to drink.

The 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate Grown (76% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, and Malbec) exhibits a dense ruby/purple color, firm tannin, and an enticing nose of black currants, espresso roast, charcoal, and cedar wood. Although closed, it is dense, promising, and ageworthy, with an upside potential of 12-15 years. 91+ - Robert Parker
