The 2000 Cabernet Sauvignon is an amazing tour de force. Quality like this was rare, if not impossible to obtain in 2000. From bottle, the wine is performing even better than it did from cask. The color is an opaque black/ruby/purple, and the amazing aromatic concoction includes notes of melted licorice, minerals, smoky toast, and blackberry as well as cassis liqueur. Full-bodied, thick, and juicy, it is a voluptuous effort to drink now and over the next 15-16 years. It is a brilliant achievement, surpassed by none, and equaled only by a few other northern California 2000s. - WA, RP (12/2003)

Saturated medium ruby. Briary black cherry, black raspberry, licorice and menthol on the superripe nose. Initially a bit tight, but opened with aeration to show fresh, layered black fruit flavors of splendid depth. It's hard to imagine that there's a 2 California cabernet with a more impressive middle palate. Finishes with great, broad, mouthcoating tannins and wonderful sweetness of fruit.- Stephen Tanzer (5/23)
