Cabernet Sauvignon, St. Helena, Napa, California
Only 4 left!
Supple, graceful, harmonious style, deftly balanced, with ripe, rich, polished currant, anise, sage, cedar and blackberry. Holds its focus on a long, lingering finish. Tannins are softening, but the depth and vitality of the flavors are impressive.--'92 California Cabernet retrospective. Drink now through 2010. 5,000 cases made. ï¿½JL WS 92 --------------------------- The classy, rich, well-focused 1992 Cabernet Sauvignon possesses a Chateau Margaux-like fragrance and personality. Neither overblown nor excessively extracted, it is a beautifully made, pure, cassis-dominated wine with well-integrated toasty new oak. No component part dominates, and the wine exhibits no hard edges. Rich, medium to full-bodied, and authoritatively flavored, this Cabernet is approachable now but promises to age gracefully for 12-20 years. Robert Parker 90 pts.
