Stephen Brook

Tasting: Napa & Sonoma Cabernet Sauvignon

Voluptuous plummy nose. Rich, velvety, full-bodied, concentrated, with an admirable generosity of fruit, fine ripeness, and fine-grained tannins. Balanced and harmonious, with a chocolate, oaky finish. Delicious and long.

Tasting: Napa & Sonoma Cabernet Sauvignon

The wine is very generous in alcohol however the balance is maintained due to the acidity. There are a lot of cooked, dark fruits and a hint of black pepper.

David Motion

Tasting: Napa & Sonoma Cabernet Sauvignon

Sunshine and shadow. Deep autumnal fruit with a dark side. Stylish. A good blast of freshness courses through the rich, sweet fruit. Peppery, present tannins.
