"Concentrated brambleberries, Kirsch liqueur, cedar, peppercorns and anise spices dominate the nose with underlying nuances of ripe olive and fennel. The 2011 vintage has an expansive mouth feel with blueberries and meaty, pure Cabernet flavors that include black currants, plums and toasty oak. This is a big, full-throttled and luscious style of Cabernet." —winemaker
"Even better, the 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon Four Flags is 100% Cabernet that comes from Red Mountain and is a mix from the Upchurch, Grand Ciel, Ciel du Cheval and Klipsun vineyards. Aged 20 to 22 months in French oak, it offers a full-bodied, elegant, yet classically styled profile to go with notions of cassis, black raspberry, lead pencil shavings and dried spices that show on both the nose and palate. Concentrated and rich, with excellent mid-palate density and building tannin, it nevertheless stays seamless, elegant and perfectly balanced. Give it 2-3 years in the cellar and drink it over the following 10 to 15 years." —Jeb Dunnuck, The Wine Advocate

"Bright ruby-red. Cassis and blueberry aromas are complemented by wild herbs and toasty oak. Deeper than the D2, showing outstanding density and focus to its dark fruit, olive tapenade, Asian spice and iron flavors. Wonderfully pliant and vibrant wine, with extremely suave tannins spreading out to saturate the palate on the very long finish. A classically structured, outstanding wine in the making, this will be better for five years in the cellar." —Stephen Tanzer, Vinous
