Stephen Brook

Tasting: Napa & Sonoma Cabernet Sauvignon

Super-ripe, raisiny nose. Plump, rounded, juicy, full-bodied, black fruits and chocolate, but also has some unwelcome sweetness from the alcohol, though the latter is not that apparent. Lacks freshness, so it’s a tad heavy on the finish. Good length.

Tasting: Napa & Sonoma Cabernet Sauvignon

Very sweet and generous in alcohol, the wine shows a lot of ripe, dark fruit aromas. Very good but slightly too concentrated for my palate.

David Motion

Tasting: Napa & Sonoma Cabernet Sauvignon

Very ripe, slightly raisiny nose. Alcoholic and powerful. Lacks complexity.
