Stephen Brook

Tasting: Napa & Sonoma Cabernet Sauvignon

Opaque red. Hefty, tarry nose, oaky and plummy. Very rich, full-bodied, powerful, packed with fruit, has hefty tannins, and, alas, a raisiny finish with too much alcohol. Impressive but scarcely drinkable.

Tasting: Napa & Sonoma Cabernet Sauvignon

Lovely eucalyptus bouquet followed by some ripe cherry aromas. Alcohol very well controlled, tannins well integrated.

David Motion

Tasting: Napa & Sonoma Cabernet Sauvignon

Grilled fruit, hickory barbeque. Almost Zinfandel-like in its power and richness.
