Winemaker's Notes:

Varietal Content: 95% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2% Cabernet Franc, 3% Petit Verdot

The 2004 Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is fruit-driven exhibiting complex layers of dried cherries, tobacco, leather and earth tones balanced with expressions of toasty oak reminiscent of vanilla spice box. This is a magnificent wine with an opulent nose of dark berries, ripe plum and black fruits, with earthy undertones of sage, underbrush and spices. The wine will evolve into a long and lingering finish of plush, velvety tannins and is a perfect complement to warm, earthy dishes, wild game and red meats.

A lush and well-structured wine that can be enjoyed now or aged for the next five years.
