Good Cab and an excellent bargain. This non-estate Carmenet Cab has a healthy dark purple color, medium body, and full-function nose and flavors of dark currants, cherry liqueur, and smoke. Definitely Californian in accessibility and pleasure level at this early age. Not particularly complex, nor likely to become so, but it may well gain a level or two in the resonance of its bouquet as it ages for another year or two. - WB Team 2000-08-28
