Producer:

Stephen Brook

Tasting: Napa & Sonoma Cabernet Sauvignon

Firm blackberry nose, with a curiously mineral edge. Suave texture, concentrated, quite powerful, with firm but ripe tannins and good acidity. A complex wine with intensity and balance, and a pure blackcurrant and blackberry finish. Has Napa grandeur without Napa excesses. Good length.

Yohann Jousselin MS

Tasting: Napa & Sonoma Cabernet Sauvignon

Elegant and the tannins are well integrated. Ripe dark fruit, this offers great complexity with notes of cedar wood, tobacco and creme de cassis.

Tasting: Napa & Sonoma Cabernet Sauvignon

Alluring nose of soft damson fruit. Plenty of stuffing. Touch oaky at the moment. Big but polished.
