2000 Rosenblum Holbrook Mitchell Trio
Napa Valley, California
 
WB Rating: 88

 
Alcohol by volume: 14.6%
Price at time of purchase: $35.00 (from winery)
 
Type: Cabernet / Bordeaux
Principal varietal(s): 44% Cabernet, 41% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc

Attractive deep purple color leads to a rich, weighty Cabernet blend (44% Cab, 41% Merlot, 15% Cab Franc). The nose is probably not yet fully developed, but displays cherries, dark berries, vanilla, and chocolate components, and a distant floral touch. Good depth in the attack and midrange, with a nice bitter chocolate feel in the mouth. Good Cab even at this young age; may merit a few more points in the future if some more complexity and elegance emerge. - WB team 2003-01-07
