Beautiful deep garnet color. Aromas of blackberry, cassis, violets, cedar, tobacco, and hints of minerals and graphite. Sweet, densely packed and creamy in the mouth, but with firm, underlying structure that gives lift to the dark berry, chocolate, and coffee flavors. This is a very lush, soft, complex wine that coats the palate and spreads out on the long, lingering finish.

International Wine CellarMedium red-ruby. Slightly medicinal aromas of cassis and blackberry complicated by mineral and smoky nuances. Lush, spicy and full, with enough harmonious acidity to keep the very sweet, ripe fruit flavors lively. A firmly built and rather serious cabernet for the price, finishing with excellent dark fruit intensity.

Wine SpectatorTastes sweet, with ripe strawberry-rhubarb and wild berry flavors that are appealing, but not what you'd expect from a Napa Cabernet. More like a Zinfandel-Cabernet.
