Winemaker's Notes

Blend: 70% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Merlot

Critical Acclaim

"Good full ruby-red. Crunchy cassis, bitter chocolate, violet, black olive and a note of leather on the nose. Quite juicy if a bit firm-edged, with musky black cherry, blackberry, violet and licorice flavors complicated by an enticing whiff of game. Offers a chewy texture but the faint herbal notes suggest very good but not outstanding ripeness. But then this is exactly the kind of fresh 2004 that should enjoy a positive evolution in barrel. "
93 Points

"Intense aromas of currant bush and berries that turn to roses. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and a floral, leafy and fruity aftertaste. Builds on the palate. Needs time. Best after 2011."
90 Points

"This dark purple-tinged 2004 is presently revealing abundant amounts of spicy new oak, but based on previous vintages, that component should be quickly absorbed (the percentage of new oak utilized has not changed). A deep ruby/purple color is followed by aromas of black cherries, currants, and pain grille, medium body, and a soft finish. This elegant, classic wine would benefit from additional concentration. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2018."
