James Suckling 91 points - Dark fruit, some leather already and a hint of herbal liqueur. Tobacco and sweet blackcurrant fruit, too. Full-bodied with chewy tannins, lots of plum character and a fruit-forward finish. Drink in 2019..December/2017
The Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is a supple wine, exhibiting aromas of cassis, currant and raspberry. A small percentage of grapes are whole berry fermented, contributing a softness in the tannin structure and an added richness, polished texture and earthy body.
This wine pairs well with roasted meats, particularly when served with a berry or currant reduction sauce. Wild mushroom risotto or any dish featuring Portabello mushrooms would be a great match with the earthy characteristics of this wine.
2000 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon WINE ENTHUSIAST AUGUST 2003, Steve Heimoff SCORE: 90 "Always reliable, and often a value, this vintage William Hill hits paydirt with well-etched black currant flavors wrapped in a shroud of toasty oak. The dry tannins are complex, and the wine feels velvety on the palate."
