An incredible price on a magnum of this top-tier Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. From what many belive to be a lighter style of vintage, BV did an excelling job with this wine. Drinking beautifully right - very Bordeauxesque. An excellent value, drink this while your 2001 and 2002 George de Latour's are aging in the cellar.
Deep black cherry, black olive and complex, mineral-licorice aromas reflect classic Rutherford. Well balanced, the finish features the minerality and structure typical of the vineyard.
"Still young and jammy, with dark purple color and great heaps of cherry, blackberry and cassis fruit, overlaid with plush, vanilla-tinged oak. There's an enormous depth of flavor in the mouth, rich and jammy, with fruity, chocolate notes. The tannins are evident now in this very dry wine. It is a cellar candidate; a very good wine, but not a great vintage."
