Wow! Beyond expectations. Big, dense, rich, bold, complex, and fun. 2004 gave us a very hot harvest and wines that were a bit clumsy and tannic at bottling. However, time has done well for this 2004 Karl Lawrence Cab. It is a pretty and rich wine. Forward and aromatic notes of black fruits, coffee, tobacco, and cedar. A slight minerality shows a bit, too. The balance on this wine is great and the expressions are generous throughout the journey on the palate. A great wine through and through.
