(From 2010 Vintage) While this wine is in its infancy, it delivers complexities of bright red fruit on the entry, followed by blackberry, blueberry, leather, rose petals, dried violets, currant, cross-fit strength fruits and layered dark cocoa. Savory baking spices of allspice, clove, cardamom, incense, graphite and French roast continue through the palate with support from a firm, yet approachable, tannin structure.
Robert Parker(From 2004 Vintage) "The 2004 Caravina (76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Petit Verdot, and 4% Cabernet Franc) is an up-front, fragrant effort displaying notes of cedar, black currants, white chocolate, coffee, and spice box. Supple-textured with gorgeous levels of fruit, medium body, and a silky finish, it should drink well for 8-12 years. It is typical of the open-knit, precocious 2004 vintage."
Robert Parker(From 2000 Vintage) "The 2000 Caravina (850 cases of 100% Cabernet Sauvignon) has more sweetness and plump fruit than the 1999. This elegant, refined, and delicious medium to full-bodied Cabernet should be consumed during its first 10-12 years of life."
