The 2004 North Coast Cabernet Sauvignon comes primarily from the Napa Valley mountains, and from Alexander Valley. Splashes of Merlot, Syrah and Cabernet Franc add spicy aromatics and a plumper mid-palate. The wine was aged in oak barrels, bringing forward the wine's cedar forest and vanilla tones.
This is a dark, ruby-red wine that is rich, textured and a considerable value - especially due to its fruit sourcing,
quality and taste. This wine has layers of concentrated wild mountain blackberry, black
cherry and ripe raspberry fruit flavors. It is well-balanced with coffee notes and
a sturdy tannic backbone.
This wine brings out the best in grilled game, meats and fish, as well as stew and red-sauce pasta.
