There are 18000-20000 cases of the 2000 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve one of the finest efforts from this difficult vintage. The wine is a blend of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon 14% Cabernet Franc and the rest Merlot and Malbec. It exhibits a deep purple color as well as an elegant sweet perfume of black currants intertwined with licorice loamy soil and hints of mints as well as new oak. It is ripe long and structured with medium to full body outstanding purity and concentration and a persistent finish. This elegant Cabernet will be at its finest between 2006-2020.

Very silky on entry then broad rich and sweet with superb expressive fruit. Seamless full very suave wine with lovely layered texture and flavor definition. Really opens out on the finish showing fine-grained tannins and terrific length.

Acidity kicks in on the finish. Structurally superb, but curiously lean and herbal in flavor, as thought it were deliberately picked early. No doubt meant for the cellar.
