An excellent Cab, if a bit constrained and tannic. Textbook Cabernet nose with dark currants, cedar, and subtle oak. Somewhat French-like in its body and austerity. Finish adequate but slightly clipped. Tasted out of a magnum, it might get a bit more warm-hearted in a few more years, though I wouldn't count on it. - HK 2004-03-27
