Bialla Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon 2004
from Napa Valley, California
The label depicts an old stone structure which is believed to be the oldest house in Tiburon, CA. It is referred to in history books as "the Castle." The house sits a few hundred feet above the San Francisco bay and commands a 180 degree view of the bay. In its golden days it was a distribution center for alcoholic libations during prohibition. It is complete with tunnels, hidden caves, and has been the home of actors, authors and entrepreneurs. Today, slightly improved for today's lifestyle, it is the residence of the Bialla family.
All fruit in this fine Cabernet Sauvignon is estate grown. Bialla's goal is to spare no expense in making the finest wine possible, with a maximum production limit of 500 cases per year. This is a rich Cabernet true to Napa's world famous style. Look for dark fruits and hints of tobacco, with a nice long finish.

OK, so after displaying an enormous amount of self control, last night I finally drank the wine. WOW! You've got a major hit.
I had been waiting for a special moment that would also provide the wine some exposure to a few good. guys in the industry. Last night, in celebrating my birthday, a couple of friends came over for dinner. You were in good company.
We drank a bottle of '97 Harlan (worth about $1000!), an Abreu that is one of my favorite wines, an Egelhoff, and a bottle of David Aurthur Elevation 1147, the year Egelhoff scored 99 in the spectator. Takes a pretty damned good bottle of wine to stand up next to those boys!

Great wine -- smoooooth! Reminded me of Silver Oak. Bialla's a complete family operation - their CFO is son Ben, age 9. Only produced 180 cases of the 2004, their second vintage. Good to see a hidden gem like this on wine.com.
