The 2001 Cabernet Sauvignon is a dark ruby color. In the nose, there are nuances of dark cherry and nicely-integrated oak with a background of black currant and cassis. Very fruitful entry, crisp, with a long finish, this wine promises a long life of enjoyment.
Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wines13% Merlot; 7% Cabernet Franc; 4% Petit Verdot. While we find no fault with this bottling's very proper varietal themes of cherries, oak and herbs, the one wants for more volume, more range and more overall intensity to be much more than a clean but somewhat hollowed-out wine.
