Napa Valley Winery Exchange, San Francisco
From our tasting notes...
2002 Chateau de Vie Cabernet Sauvignon
Darkly fruity nose of brandied cherries, bouillon, vanilla and rich forest floor scents with peppery hints in the background. Somewhat fleshy on the palate, where it shows deeply ripe cherry fruit tied to lots of mocha, vanilla, baking spice and toasty flavors. Broadly rich and very flavorful, with a fine long finish. This is a lovely cabernet with a sense of ripeness that pushes its tannins below the surface. Built for steaks, stews and rich roasts, it is also an excellent sipper and might be a great companion to rich cheeses.
   
2001 Chateau de Vie Cabernet Sauvignon
Appealing, gradually expansive nose of dark berry and plum, with attractive vanilla notes and forest floor scents in support. This is a fully ripe Cabernet, with good body and length, and its food compatibility grows nicely as it airs. If young, it is already appealing; with any youthful rough edges disappearing as soon as it is paired with dinner.
