A tremendous effort, dark, ripe, rich and concentrated, with beautifully defined blackberry, currant and black cherry fruit. Firms up nicely on the finish where chewy tannins provide backbone and structure. Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Best from 2003 through 2012. 1,500 cases made.

Brawny and concentrated, with vibrant intensity to the beef, cola, pomegranate and black cherry tones, turning chunky, with firm tannins and acidity that keep the flavors streamlined, with fresh herb and cedar accents shaping the finish. Shows some heat, too. Drink now through 2008. 305 cases made.

The 1998 Cabernet Sauvignon 17th Anniversary Release offers a dark ruby color as well as a big, peppery, spicy, black currant, plum, mineral, earth, and dried herb-scented bouquet. Medium to full-bodied, with a fine texture in addition to a medium-weight, Bordeaux-like style. Drink 2002-2016.
90 Wine Spectator
Well-balanced, with complex coffee, currant, spice and chocolaty notes, it's an understated style that's rich and polished, gaining depth and nuance on the finish. Drink now through 2010.
93 Wine Spectator
Excellent balance and depth of flavor to this Cabernet blend, with mocha-laced oak wrapped around ripe currant and blackberry fruit. It's seamless, and reveals extra flavor dimensions and elements of finesse that draw you back for another sip. Best from 2004 through 2012. 6,700 cases made.
