Connoisseurs' Guide to California WinesWhile its cassis-like fruit and loamy earth accents mark it clearly as varietal, and its pleasant oak sweetness brings it an extra bit of immediate attraction, this tasty, mildly tannic Cabernet is easy enough to like, but nowhere does it show the kind of depth or drama that might reasonably be expected by its inflated price. It has a little room for improvement, and, while it may not grow for decades, it should soften a touch and fill out just a bit with three or four years of age.
