(From 1997 Vintage) The 1997 Napa Valley Cabernet immediately impresses you with its overall balance and richness.Soft, rich silkiness on the palate. The 1997 vintage was a stellar vintage in the Napa Valley and this Cabernet is definitely a reflection of that quality.

Decanter(From 1997 Vintage) Rating: 0/5 - As reviewed by Decanter. Showing some aromatic evolution and freshness, this iconic wine from a stellar vintage is very serious. Weighty yet stylish, it has flavours of coffee and blackcurrant pastilles, and still youthful tannins. Very good wine but nowhere near its peak yet.
