Winemaker Notes

Deep garnet red color with a polished brilliance. From start to finish there is more than ample evidence of a quite complex, powerfully built wine. There is a rich and multifaceted array of fully ripe Bordeaux fruit aromas that are very evident up front and literally explode in the glass with time and a bit of aeration. This is not over the top stuff as evidenced by the bright as opposed to pruny fruit. Deep mulberry, cassis and a touch of violets come to mind. Further aeration brings forth more of the spicy aromas of the Bordeaux grapes—some nutmeg, leather and a hint of green olive. Wood, even though 80% new, is only background toastiness and is far outweighed by the more powerful fruit driven aromas. Flavors at this youthful stage are really quite impressively showy. An overall sweetness seems to dominate and frames some delicious chocolate followed by ripe berry flavors. A wonderful delicately smoky/toasty oak blends well with the complex fruitiness. Tannins are certainly evident but are fine and soft.

Critical Acclaim

RP 92
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Still youthful but accessible and evolving very positively, Forman’s 2001 Cabernet Sauvignon has a dense ruby/plum/purple color just beginning to lighten at the edge. A hypothetical blend of top-class Medoc and a Napa Cabernet Sauvignon, notes of licorice, tobacco leaf, damp earth, black currants and violets are all present in this medium to full-bodied wine, which still has some tannin to resolve.

Napa Valley

Cabernet Sauvignon

One of the most prestigious wines of the world capable of great power and grace, Napa Valley Cabernet is a leading force in the world of fine, famous, collectible red wine. Today the Napa Valley and Cabernet Sauvignon are so intrinsically linked that it is difficult to discuss one without the other. But it wasn’t until the 1970s that this marriage came to light; sudden international recognition rained upon Napa with the victory of the Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars 1973 Cabernet Sauvignon in the 1976 Judgement of Paris.

Cabernet Sauvignon undoubtedly dominates Napa Valley today, covering half of the land under vine, commanding the highest prices per ton and earning the most critical acclaim. Cabernet Sauvignon’s structure, acidity, capacity to thrive in multiple environs and ability to express nuances of vintage make it perfect for Napa Valley where incredible soil and geographical diversity are found and the climate is perfect for grape growing. Within the Napa Valley lie many smaller sub-AVAs that express specific characteristics based on situation, slope and soil—as a perfect example, Rutherford’s famous dust or Stags Leap District's tart cherry flavors.
