Winemaker's Notes

A deep ruby color with bright red hues with a classic, deeply concentrated nose of cassis liqueur, black currants, mulberries, menthol and dark chocolate. The nose is a reflection of the ripeness and generous fruit depth coming from the 2004 vintage. The wine is well balanced with soft supple tannins, sweet fruit and elegant acid structure. The refined palate offers a full-bodied rich wine yet well-harnassed and controlled by fine chalky tannin structure and raspberry conserve like acid. An opulent and varietal Cabernet that was made possible by near perfect vintage conditions, strategic vineyard selection and blending. This wine is best consumed within 6-8 years from bottling.

"Tiny dollops of Malbec and Merlot are included in the 2004 Cabernet Sauvignon, a Bordeaux-like red offering up superb aromas of black currants, cedar, licorice, and new oak. Opaque ruby/purple-colored and medium-bodied with good acidity, intensity, and purity, it should drink well for 10-12 years." 90 Points
Wine Advocate
December 2006

"Deep red. Textbook cabernet nose offers pungent redcurrant, cherry, tobacco and cigarbox aromas complicated by dried rose and green peppercorn. Sharply etched red and dark berry flavors show very good depth as well as bright minerality. Sweetness builds on the long, juicy finish, which leaves traces of vanilla and bitter chocolate behind. While this is built to age there's plenty of flavor interest right now." 91 Points
International Wine Cellar

"Bright and generous, with a savory character to the raspberry, cherry and mint flavors, finishing polished and refined. Drink now through 2015." 89 Points
