Vine Cliff Winery Private Stock 16 Rows Cabernet Sauvignon, Oakville, USA 2003
Wine EnthusiastThis is Vine Cliff's highest designation Cab, and it just keeps getting better and better. It's a very serious wine. Shows its Oakville origins in the ripe blackberry and currant flavors, extraordinary balance and elegant power, but the tannins are fairly tough at this time. It's nothing that decanting and good beef can't handle, but this dense, complex wine should soften and improve over the next decade.
Wine SpectatorA dash of creamy oak softens the tannins in this version, while a touch of vanilla takes away from the twinge of bitterness. Rich and complete, this is good but nothing exceptional.
