Like the "Family Selection" Cab, this wine is not particularly fruit-driven. It has a fairly rich mouth feel but the flavors are weighted towards coffee, chocolate, and herbs rather than fruit. Attractive wine, solid enough effort, just not enough depth and length to be higher rated. - WB Team 2002-11-17
