Vintage Notes: The 2004 harvest was extremely favorable and produced a wealth of high quality fruit. A steady growing season with mild temperatures throughout the year allowed for the grapes to ripen to full maturity two weeks earlier than usual. These conditions, coupled with a rain-free ripening season, have resulted in a vintage of vibrant color, concentrated flavors and beautiful aromatics.
Winemaker's Notes: Our Sonoma Mountain Cabernet is aged for 30 months in new French oak barrels. This hearty, bold Cabernet has a deep garnet hue with rich aromas of black cherries, luscious chocolate and an underlyig whisper of black currant. The rich, concentrated flavors include abundant layers of ripe cherries and black currants covered in vanilla cream, leading to a long, full finish.
