Wine.comThis 1997 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon possesses a brilliant, light garnet color. The dry spiciness of its aromas, together with cedar-like scents in the background, demonstrate its terroir as well as its varietal identity. On the palate, flavors of rich black cherries, sweet currants, and cassis deliciously combine and flow into a lingering aftertaste. The overall taste-impression of this wine is one of rich black fruit in a delicious balance.
DecanterRating: 5/5 - As reviewed by Decanter. Powerful, smoky, coffee aromas. Opulent, ripe, spicy rich fruit. Amazing intensity with lovely complexity and great length. Delicious.
