Buena Vista 1996 Cabernet Sauvignon (Carneros)

This is a well built Cabernet, very opaque in color. The nose shows classic dark berry fruits, touches of tobacco, licorice and a an undercurrent of cool menthol. In the mouth it is medium to full with a solid core of blackberry fruit shaded by the same nuances that appeared in the nose. It finishes with fairly full but not harsh tannins, and will definitely improve over the next few years.
