Stephen Brook

Tasting: Napa & Sonoma Cabernet Sauvignon

Sweet ripe blackberry nose, a bit leathery. Fairly rich, supple, quite concentrated, and with some lively acidity. But the tannins are not very refined and the wine lacks some zest and personality. It’s correct but unexciting.

Tasting: Napa & Sonoma Cabernet Sauvignon

A very classic Napa Cab, showing a lot of concentration of black fruits. The alcohol is well integrated. Good but not exciting.

David Motion

Tasting: Napa & Sonoma Cabernet Sauvignon

Classic Napa Cab nose in the modern idiom. Tons of fruit with some oak. Round, smooth. Very present tannins. Needs time
