Member Review by joshwoodward:

Bubble gum pinot nose. Very balanced, tannic. Black cherry, mid harvest?

Raisin jam nose. Currant, tannic, very balanced. Sweet hot finish!

Served with beef tenderloin roast for Christmas dinner. Color is traditional garnet with just a touch of brown around the edges. Aromas of fudge and black cherry predominate. Body is full but restrained; bottle was decanted for one hour before serving and made noticeable difference. Mouthfeel is soft, smooth, moderately tannic, and definitely not overpowering. Somewhat jammy and continues the blackcherry theme with a bit of cassis at the end. Cab Franc lends some polish at the end.

Heavily charred, smoky wood is the dominant aroma, with a beefy, herbal, bay leaf edge. Some earthy currant and tarry flavors fold in on a supple finish, but its hard to identify as Napa Cabernet. Drink now through 2007. 23,000 cases made. (JL) Wine Spectator. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 1998 Cakebread Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon 750ml
