Lovely liquid darkness envelops your senses. Bring on the black fruit wrapped in smoke and luxuriate in the full-bodied layers of hedonistic pleasure.

A few issues back, Star Lane’s basic Cabernet earned glowing praise, and this, its fancier sibling, does the same. Big, optimally ripened and positively plush on the palate, it delivers a wealth of luscious, curranty fruit with the sweet, vanilla-bean trappings of first-rate oak making it all the more enticing. It is so fruity that its late-arriving tannins come as a surprise reminder that it is still very young, and a better wine will yet await the collector who can exercise five years of patience.
