Winemaker's Notes

This 2004 "Old Vines" Cabernet Sauvignon is a rich and powerful red wine. It expresses the purity of fully mature Cabernet Sauvignon fruit that one only can get from 35 year old vines. The Petit Verdot offers another layer of complexity and broadens the flavor profile of the wine beautifully. Flavors of dried black cherry and cassis married with spicy new oak and vanilla coats the mouth. The texture is soft and silky yet there are firm mature tannins in the rich, long finish. The color is dark blackish purple and complex fruit aromas leap from the glass. This red wine will benefit greatly from additional cellaring.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2004 Cabernet Sauvignon – Old Vines (35 years of age) elevates the bar. Composed of 95% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Petit Verdot, it is opaque purple-colored and delivers a superb perfume of pain grille, scorched earth, espresso, black currants, and blueberries. This is followed by an extracted wine with richly flavored dark fruits, outstanding concentration, and great balance leading to a 60-second, pure finish. Give this powerful wine 4-6 years of additional bottle age and drink it through 2035."

The evolution of the Northwest wine industry continues.

Learn About Cabernet Sauvignon
