Wine Advocate

My favorite of the 2000 Cabernet Sauvignon-dominated cuvees is the 2000 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa (650 cases). It is a blend of 81% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Cabernet Franc, 8% Merlot, and 3% Petit Verdot. The wine boasts a saturated purple color in addition to gorgeous aromas of acacia flowers mixed with licorice, creme de cassis, smoke, and minerals. It is ripe, full-bodied, and sweet. This is a terrific example from this vintage. Supple tannin and admirable fleshiness suggest early accessibility as well as 12-15 years of aging. Score range: 91-93.

Score: 93. —Robert Parker, August 2002.
