Aromas of cherries, dark berries and cedar jump from the glass of this rich, full-bodied and smooth Cabernet. Cassis and cocoa powder fill the palate, with a medium dry finish and fine tannins to assure this wine's ability to age well for the next 7-10 years.
"The impressive 2004 Cabernet Sauvignon comes primarily from a hillside vineyard above Lake Hennessy as well as Howell Mountain, Spring Mountain, and a tiny quantity from Mt. Veeder and Oakville. Its deep ruby/purple color is accompanied by a big, sweet bouquet of creme de cassis, spicy new oak, graphite, and licorice. Full-bodied, powerful, and long in the mouth, it will benefit from 1-3 years of bottle age, and last for 12-15 or more years.
