Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.
Revana Cabernet is deep ruby in color with aromas of
ripe blackberry, black cherry and cassis. Hints of sweet French
oak lead you into the first sip confirming this is a special wine.
The wine is full, yet soft in the mouth, dense and structured with
mouth coating velvety tannins. Flavors on the palate match
the aromas of ripe black fruits layered with toasty, elegant
oak components. The flavors persist with good balance and
"Sleek and well-proportioned, offering ripe currant and blackberry, mineral and tobacco flavors. Gains depth and traction, as firm ripe tannins give this a chewy, cedary aftertaste."
"This 2002 begins slowly, as its aromatics are difficult to coax from the glass and its flavors are subtle, although they build incrementally as the wine sits in the glass. While it requires some introspection, what is there is very impressive. Deep black currant notes intermixed with notions of cedarwood, tobacco leaf and loamy soil as well as serious concentration are present in this well-delineated, medium to full-bodied, well-endowed wine. Consumers need to give it more than a superficial glance."
