The 2003 Kenefick Ranch Cuvee (a 400-case lot of 93% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Merlot and Petit Verdot) exhibits an inky/ruby/purple color along with a gorgeous perfume of smoke blueberry liqueur creme de cassis white chocolate and espresso roast. Dense opulent and full-bodied with a terrific texture as well as palate penetration and a 40-45 second finish it is capable of lasting a decade or more.

I would have guessed this had some cabernet franc. Quite tightly wound after the bottling and currently showing its tannic side. But this will almost certainly merit a higher rating with four or five years of additional bottle aging. In this vintage Les Behrens used a mechanical punchdown tank for the Kenefick Ranch cabernet sauvignon-an approach that was used for more wines in 2004.
