I am going to step out on the proverbial limb and state that I believe Seavey's 1997 Cabernet Sauvignon will be their finest Cabernet since the monumental 1991. There were 1800 cases of this offering which reveals that element of sur-maturite often found in the greatest wines. The opaque purple color is accompanied by fabulous sweet black fruits and promising floral spice box scents complemented by the judicious use of oak barrels (35% new). Phenomenally deep layered and textured with full body and well-concealed high alcohol (14.5%) this is a terrific unctuously-textured concentrated and evolved Cabernet Sauvignon that should be accessible when released but age for 20-25 years.

Dark rich and perfumed with ripe supple black cherry currant chocolate herb and sage notes. Finishes with a supple texture and fine tannins making it appealing now. Drink now through 2010. 1400 cases made. (JL)

Yummy is one of the best ways to describe it. It has full but friendly tannins all the length you could ask for and in the final analysis it leaves an impression of heft and significance.
