    Winemaker's Notes:

    The nose is fresh and lifted, full of violets and blackcurrants mixing with leafy aromatics and violets. The oak supplies a touch of cedar adding complexity with the typical soulful earthiness of d'Arenberg reds. The palate is textured and lithe, coated by lacy tannins with a core of cassis, licorice and plum fruit mixed with earth, graphite and a mineral tail. It's well weighted, fresh and balanced, inviting now or will reward the patient.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Full purple-crimson; lush blackcurrant on the bouquet and palate is the mainstay of an attractive medium-bodied wine, integrated oak and ripe tannins partners in crime. A drink today or in 10 years style, a regional dark chocolate nuance on the farewell.

    Glass-staining ruby. Aromas of cherry compote, boysenberry and pipe tobacco, with subtle smoke and cracked pepper accents. Lush and creamy in texture, offering hefty dark fruit flavors that are sharpened by a spicy nuance. Finishes smooth and long, with soft tannins adding gentle grip. This wine drinks very well now after a brief decanting.

    An intense, floral cabernet with red fruit ripeness, this wine balances the powerful grip of tannins with vibrant, juicy richness. It's young and sleek, likely to grow more savory as it ages.

    Excellent medium to medium/light bodied wine. Cherry and boysenberry up front, and a very interesting spicy note on the finish. Very good value Cab!

    Nice ruby colored. It smells like blackberry, plum and black pepper. It tastes like strawberry, blackberry and dust. Medium body and smooth with medium finish. Decanted 20 mins: still a little hot and strong on the pepper aroma. Decanted 60 mins: heat resolved more fruit flavor. The sweat spot relative to decanting. Started to loose complexity with second glass after the 1 hour decant.

    I enjoyed this wine quite a bit. Supple, fruity, rich, but not too sweet. Good complexity and finish.

    Diasppointing.Good nose, bad color, no nuance, thin & tastseless. Not a 93--maybe an 80. Thought 2nd glass would be better but no improvement with airing. poued out half a bottle. Could I have gotten a bad bottle?

    Pretty intense flavors even after resting. Definitely some fruit in there, but the harsh tannins, pepper, and licorice just overwhelm. Not really my style.
