Stephen Brook

Tasting: Napa & Sonoma Cabernet Sauvignon

Closed nose, rather thick. Broad, lush, opulent, full-bodied, with dense black fruits and hefty tannins that give a chocolaty tone. There’s no finesse here, though the fruit is impressive, and the finish is long but decidedly hot.

Tasting: Napa & Sonoma Cabernet Sauvignon

Lovely hint of acidity, the wine is intense with notes of dark fruits. Alcohol high but vegetal touches help balance this.

David Motion

Tasting: Napa & Sonoma Cabernet Sauvignon

An almost floral element to the nose. Powerful. Packed with juicy fruit and large tannic structure. Something cough syrupy about the finish.
