Our 2003 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon is compelling on so many levels. The nose is packed with ripe black fruits, cherries, tar and a touch of cassis. On the palate the flavors are rich and commanding, elegant and graceful. The tannins are suave, polished and ripe. In spite of its youth, this is an incredibly complex wine that reveals the essence of Sonoma County Cabernet.
The brilliant 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve Speciale needs a lot of time, but it reveals plenty of potential. A 100% Cabernet Sauvignon aged 18 months in French oak, there are only 1,580 cases of this beauty. Abundant creme de cassis notes intermixed with loamy soil, graphite, and flowers leap from the glass. There is terrific fruit on the attack, full body, plenty of power and intensity, and a long, rich finish. It should be at its best in 4-5 years, and keep for 15-20.
