2003 Fantesca Cabernet Sauvignon

This Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon from the Spring Mountain AVA comes from a relatively new winery that is still a small production and focuses mainly on it's estate Cabernet. The neat thing about this winery is that Heidi Barrett (formerly of Screaming Eagle) has recently become the new winemaker. So look for great things to come from this winery. This Cab has a nose of vanilla, oak, blackberry, cassis, and a slight funk, like a bit of cheese. The flavors are rich with mouth coating dark fruits; blackberry, black raspberry, and a touch of dry black licorice. This wine carries a lot of oak and should be interesting in a few more years because it seems to have a solid core of fruit. 90 points
