Stephen Brook

Tasting: Napa & Sonoma Cabernet Sauvignon

Opulent blackberry and black cherry nose though lifted too. Very rich, compact, concentrated, very firm tannins, has power rather than finesse, and the alcohol is a touch high. Quite good length, somewhat dry finish.

Tasting: Napa & Sonoma Cabernet Sauvignon

Great balance between the acidity, lovely round tannins and alcohol. Shows fruits like blackberry, cherries and raspberries.

David Motion

Tasting: Napa & Sonoma Cabernet Sauvignon

Intense essence of Summer and Autumn fruit. Wonderful silky mouthfeel. Sweet, ripe fruit without being cloying or overdone. Concentrated, supple. Long. Top shelf.
