Blend: 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Cabernet Franc, 5% Petit Verdot
The 2004 Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon is a luxurious wine that captivates the eye with hues of deep blue and purple. Vivid aromas unfold with layers of blueberry, blackberry and black currant, complemented by hints of cocoa, vanilla, spice, cedar and exotic black tea. The big, juicy structure frames rich, generous flavors. Powerful and mouthfilling yet tightly knit, this youthful beauty will blossom with age.
"A classy wine that's rich and intense, with a concentrated mix of mineral, currant, blackberry, dusty herb and cedary oak flavors. Though deep and well-structured, this maintains a sense of elegance and grace, making it a good choice for near- and mid-term cellaring. Best from 2008 through 2014."
