More backward but still accessible is the inky/purple-colored 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon Peterson Family Vineyard. A sensational perfume of melted licorice black currants smoked meats underbrush and toasty oak are followed by blackberry liqueur-like flavors. This is a powerful full-throttle concentrated Cabernet to consume over the next 15+ years. Previously recommended: 2004 Cabernet Sauvignon Peterson Family Vineyard (92) 2004 Merlot Peterson Family Vineyard (92+) 2004 Petite Sirah Peterson Family Vineyard (95). Tel. (707) 738-6187

The initial whiff of new leather and toasty oak is appealing though this is a bit tight on the palate taking time for the zesty wild berry currant and black cherry flavors to unfold ending with a flash of black licorice...

Good medium-deep ruby. Blackberry and licorice on the nose. Lush superripe and concentrated with a port-like quality to the dark berry and licorice flavors. This fat cabernet boasts serious sweetness in the middle palate... Good medium-deep ruby. Blackberry and licorice on the nose. Lush superripe and concentrated with a port-like quality to the dark berry and licorice flavors. This fat cabernet boasts serious sweetness in the middle palate and the tannins are sweet too. Shows a more convincing structure than the merlot.
