Winemaker Notes

The wine pops with black cherry, cola and chocolate cherry aromas that lead into lush dark fruit flavors of blackberries and dark black cherries, with a hint of frambroise liqueur. Structured tannins lead into a long finish with toasty notes.

Critical Acclaim

WE 93
Wine Enthusiast

Always decadently opulent in blackberry, currant and chocolate fudge, the '03 seems softer than past vintages, and while it’s probably not an ager, it impresses now. It may come from Howell Mountain, but the tannins are as melted as butter on toast. The winemaker suggests steak barbecued in olive oil and rosemary, an assessment I would not argue with.

ST 92
International Wine Cellar

Good medium red-ruby. Cherry, chocolate and a mineral note on the nose. Sweet currant and cherry flavors are nicely framed by harmonious acidity. A sexy, suave wine with lovely cut and definition and nicely integrated tannins.

The Wine Advocate

From the higher elevation 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon Rancho del Oso on Howell Mountain, more chocolate, crushed blueberries, minerals, and vanillin are present in this medium to full-bodied, impressively endowed Cabernet Sauvignon that is more structured and linear than the Monte Rosso.
