Tasting Notes:

Dense and cedary, austere and tannic, with drying dark berry, mint, cedar and cigar box notes. The better of two bottles tasted. Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Petit Verdot.--2003 California Cabernet blind retrospective (July 2013). Drink now through 2019. 1,964 cases made.

Tasting Notes:

This wine has filled out very nicely. Nearly 3,000 cases were produced of this flowery, tar, camphor, incense, blackberry, black currant, espresso and chocolate-scented beauty. A blend of 61% Cabernet Sauvignon, a whopping 22% Cabernet Franc and the rest Merlot and Petit Verdot, this full-bodied, opulent 2003 is just entering its plateau of full maturity. It is better at age ten than it was early in life from cask and post-bottling.

description Producer information Professional reviews

In 1982, after a six year search, Sir Peter Michael and Lady Michael purchased 630 acres of volcanic ridges on the western face of Mount St. Helena in Knights Valley. Drawing inspiration from the great wineries of Burgundy and Bordeaux, the family hired like-minded viticulturists and winemakers to help them create terroir-driven wines that would stand the test of time.
