Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wines(From 2005 Vintage) 16% Cabernet Sauvignon; 4% Petit Verdot. Intriguing notes of sarsaparilla, sweet loam, ripe red cherries and creme caramel give a good start to this full-bodied wine, and its deep cherry, currant and woody, loamy flavors follow on directly. Pushy astringency makes itself known in the latter palate at this point, but there is enough fruit in reserve to allow the wine to age into a smoother maturity with cellar time and a wait of some three to five years would seem the minimum required.
