2001 Seavey Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #1012116 94 points Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Readers looking for a St.-Estephe look-alike should check out this brooding, monster Cabernet Sauvignon from Bill Seavey and winemaker Philippe Melka. Tasting nearly the same as it did eight years ago, it reveals stunning, sweet chocolaty notes interwoven with notions of burning embers, loamy soil, black currants and forest floor. The complex aromatics are followed by a full-bodied, powerful, backward wine that still needs 8-10 years of cellaring. This blend of 95% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Petit Verdot from the dry-farmed hillside vineyards of Bill and the late Mary Seavey is a 35-50-year wine. Only for true connoisseurs and those with patience! (RP) 94+ Inner quote mark (5/2011)

93 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Moderately saturated bright, dark red. Inviting, loamy aromas of plum, raspberry, mocha, tobacco leaf and mulch, plus a whiff of leather. Plush, dense and fairly full but lively in the mouth, with good mineral verve framing the supple red fruit, tobacco and earth flavors. Savory and mellow, not black fruit or medicinal in character. Finishes with substantial broad, tongue-and tooth-dusting tannins and lovely savory persistence and soil character. Inner quote mark (6/2020)
