The 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve (a blend of equal parts Napa and Sonoma fruit) offers abundant quantities of creme de cassis notes medium to full body a big beefy smoky character intermixed with scorched earth coffee and blackberries and a rich dense smooth style. Drink this superb Cabernet over the next 12-15 years.

Spice red currant and blackberry aromas. Turns taut and firm on the palate with mouthcoating tannins. Hints of mocha and vanilla bean add a nice flavor dimension and on the finish the fruit and tannins shine through. Best... Spice red currant and blackberry aromas.

Classic Cabernet aromas of cassis, graphite, bitter chocolate and camphor, along with nutty oak and a suggestion of superripeness. Plush, glyceral and smooth, offering slightly jammy flavors of black cherry, plum, currant, chocolate and spices. Can't match the 2002 for lift but this rather exotic wine is dark and deep. Finishes with substantial tongue-dusting tannins and a lingering note of black cherry. Seems relatively high in volatile acidity but then Steve Pride noted that VA levels for this bottling are nearly always in the 0.8-0.9 grams-per-liter range.
