This is a smooth, rich and very drinkable Cabernet Sauvignon. It shows ripely classic flavors of blackberries, black currants, minerals and cedar. The tannins are brisk and furry, but the wine doesn’t seem like a longterm ager. Good now and through 2014.
Lots of power and richness in this young, vigorous Pinot Noir. With brisk acids and tannins, it shows complex flavors of cherries, licorice, bacon, cola and Chinese Five Spice. Exotic and interesting, it should develop over the next 3–4 years.
This shows lots of blackberry and currant flavors, along with a polished jacket of smoky oak. It’s bone dry but a little heavy. Perfect for easy drinking when you need a nice Cabernet and don’t want to mortgage the house.
