2013 Seavey Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon  (Napa Valley) 95

Full-bodied, powerful, concentrated and youthful, the wine is dark in color. Oaky, with loads of bitter chocolate, smoke, licorice and ripe, round, richly textured blackberries, the wine needs a few more years to soften its wall of tannins. But not too worry, there is more than enough, sweet, ripe fruit here to warrant the wait. 95 Points

2012 Seavey Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon  (Napa Valley) 94

Powerful, big, fat, dense, tannic, full bodied and concentrated. The wine has character, complexity and length, balancing ripeness with fresh attributes. Based on previous vintages, this needs time in the cellar, but it has proved time and time again that it has the ability to age, and evolve. A little oaky, and primary at the present, I expect this will be even better with a decade of sleep under its belt. The wine was made from a blend of 94.5% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5.5% Petit Verdot. 94 Points

2009 Seavey Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Caravina  (Napa Valley) 90

Coffee bean, blackberry and cocoa notes lead to a round, ripe, rich, black cherry, licorice and earthy finish. Forward in style, this is already fun to drink. 90 Points

2009 Seavey Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon  (Napa Valley) 93

Now we're talking! The flashy, licorice, fresh roasted espresso bean, earth, cassis, chocolate and black cherry nose gets you going. On the palate, the wine is fleshy, rich, round and full bodied. The wine will definitely improve with 3-5 or more years of bottle age. I'm still drinking my 1991 Seavey with pleasure, so this could turn out to be very long lived. 93 Points

2008 Seavey Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon  (Napa Valley) 92

From 90% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Petit Verdot, this richly textured, deep colore wine opens with blackberry, earth, smoke and spice, before the wine ends with a round, chocolate covered, fresh blackberry finish. This should improve with age. 92 Points

2008 Seavey Vineyard Merlot  (Napa Valley) 87

With licorice, cherry and oak, this medium bodied, lighter style of Merlot is probably best enjoyed on the young side of life. 87 Points

1997 Seavey Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon  (Napa Valley) 95

Pure cassis, with fresh, crisp, cherry laden fruit and a sweet, concentrated, long, blackberry and cocoa, soft, smooth finish. I really like the style of this wine. 95 Points

Blending an interesting mix of 90.5% Cabernet Sauvignon and the remainder taken up with Petit Verdot, the wine is filled with ripe dark berries with hints of chocolate covered cherry, forest floor, earth and a hint of smoke. The rich, concentrated, refined wine has everything in balance, ending with a big juicy mouthful of ripe, chewy, spicy Cabernet Sauvignon. I like how this is showing today. Based on recent tastings of the 1991, the wine has a good future. This could be one of the longest lived wines of the vintage. The original $40 cost continues paying dividends! 95 Points

1994 Seavey Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon  (Napa Valley) 92

Stylish, ripe, fresh and loaded with cassis, blackberry, earth and cherry notes. Full bodied, spicy and ready for its prime time, Seavey once again offers some of the best value for the money in high quality Cabernet ased wines in California. 92 Points

1991 Seavey Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon  (Napa Valley) 95

Packed with tobacco, blackberry liqueur, smoke, earth, black cherry jam. This is full bodied, deep and long. This wine is still young, fresh and packed with fruit. 95 Points

Filled with ripe blackberry and licorice, this beefy, meaty, concentrated, full bodied intense wine was still young and fresh. This will only get better with time. 94 Points
