There are just over 1000 cases of the Cabernet Sauvignon which is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from the hillsides of the Blankiet estate. The 2003 showing an almost “liqueur of rocks” character is a huge gigantic Cabernet Sauvignon that is intense purple in color very full-bodied with notes of coffee graphite blackberry blueberry and cassis. The striking minerality comes forth in the flavors as well and the wine reveals refined but high tannins a massive texture and awesome concentration. Give this wine 4-5 years of bottle age and drink it over the following 30 years. It is a stunning Cabernet Sauvignon that is showing even better out of bottle that it did from barrel.

Deep ruby color. Blackberry pepper mint and tar on the vibrant nose. Lush but dry with strong acids giving terrific cut and definition to the dark berry and bitter chocolate flavors. But this also offers excellent breadth... Deep ruby color. Blackberry pepper mint and tar on the vibrant nose. Lush but dry with strong acids giving terrific cut and definition to the dark berry and bitter chocolate flavors. But this also offers excellent breadth and palate coverage. Finishes with full tannins that call for at least a few years of additional bottle aging.
