Artesa 1997 Cabernet Sauvignon (Napa Valley)

Cassis and blackcurrant aromas burst forth, almost swamped in oak, with it's toasty, cedary, smoky, clove-scented elements. Oak dominates the palate, too, and fairly aggressive tannins mask underlying blackberry fruit flavors. This is a cellar candidate, unless you really like young tannic wines.
