WSI 94, ST92: Bright ruby-red. Crushed cassis, blackberry, fresh herbs, dark chocolate, mocha, and licorice on the sexy, highly aromatic nose. Suave, sweet, pliant wine with nicely concentrated dark berry and dark cherry flavors. Still youthful but without any hardness. Finishes very long, with sweet, firm tannins and noteworthy incipient complexity. A superb showing: a very sexy wine with no corners. (This bottling has been called Perseid since vintage 2007.)14.6% alcohol 100% Cabernet Sauvignon. 720 cases produced. ~ Stephen Tanzer
