The 2003 Vine Hill Cabernet Sauvignon opens with complex, come-hither aromas of ripe blackberry fruit mingled with notes of milk chocolate, fig and sweet brown spices. On the palate, the wine delivers intense, concentrated, spicy blackberry flavors full of the classic 'dusty' character for which mid-Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is famed. Youthfully compact, with sturdy, well-integrated tannins, this classic Napa Valley Cabernet is difficult to resist now, but it should be cellared for a minimum of five years to ensure maximum enjoyment.
This needs a day of air; it takes shape slowly, with black fruit as fat as a porcini or a ripe fig. Strawberry high-tones contrast a deeper baritone savor. The texture is luscious, the flavors lasting. For roast duck.
