1997 Paradigm Cabernet Sauvignon, Oakville, USA
$129.99 USD $144.99 USD
Full ruby-red. Lively, somewhat briary aromas of cassis, blackberry and bitter chocolate. Supple and sweet but juicy in the mouth, with a ripe flavor of plum liqueur. Quite bright in the middle palate, and currently hiding its underlying density. Has good underlying structure. Potentially the best cabernet yet from this producer.
Rated 90 points, Stephen Tanzer, Vinous
