The color is a dark ruby/purple and the nose offers up sweet fragrant scents of black fruits cedar herbs and spicy wood. In the mouth there is extraordinary concentration medium to full body and an authoritatively rich lingering finish. Terroirists will have a difficult time explaining why the wine tastes more like a Pomerol than Napa Cabernet. Interestingly Moueix stated the key to his success in 1989 was to wait six to seven days after the rains had stopped before harvesting so the vines could shed their excess moisture. The 7000 cases of this wine that were produced will be released in the fall of 1993.</P>

Mature with a Bordeaux-like cedar tobacco and black cherry core. Tannins are integrated and it has enough fruit and tannin for another decade.--1989 California Cabernet retrospective. Drink now through 2006. 7500 cases... Mature with a Bordeaux-like cedar tobacco and black cherry core.
