A vibrant, rich ruby color segways into aromas of freshly picked strawberries, followed by hints of ripe blackberries and blueberries. Wel-integrated aromatic notes of shortbread, vanilla, clove, white pepper and fresh herbs, particularly anise, provide layers of complexity and intrigue. Supple and silky tannins lead to a lingering juicy berry finish.

Wine Enthusiast(2000 Vintage) "A very fine Cabernet. All of the elements are upfront, including the vivacious berry flavors, oak, and soft, smooth tannins. Dry and clean, this is a wine suited to drinking tonight, but it has the balance to age effortlessly."
