Arthur P. Johnson in Tasting Notes

(September 30, 2009) Maybe *Fisticuffs Cabernet Sauvignon 2007 Napa Valley just needs another six months to take off the gloves. Fruit is plentiful, finish is good, but tannins are out in force right now.  Swish it around in your mouth, make those wine geek sucking sounds and you'll find exotic flavors -- pomegranate, allspice and other stuff that keeps you hoping it'll come out and clobber you like the label promises. For now, it's frustrating. To be revisited.
