Frazier 1996 Lupine Hill Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon (Napa Valley)

Forget about run-of-the-mill with this idiosyncratic second-vintage Napa Cab. Enjoyable, but also big and clumsy, with beet root as well as herbal and bramble notes in the pungent nose. A real oak express here, with heavy dill notes. Spicy black fruit and an astringency on the palate. Too much wood for my taste, but others might get into it. Michael Schachner
