Winemaker's Notes:

Rombauer Vineyards' 2004 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is a rich, concentrated wine that exhibits layers of plums, black cherries, and blueberries that are well integrated. The wine shows ripe fruit flavors of black cherries and plums that are nicely balanced with light vanilla and oak from barrel aging. This is a fruit driven Cabernet Sauvignon that has the tannin structure to last many years, but drinks well now.

"We have moved from buying Cabernet to owning or managing all of our vineyards to insure the optimum quality and fruit expression. The vineyards, which are located near Calistoga, Atlas Peak, Diamond Mountain, and Oak Knoll, each have their own unique flavor and structure. Each lot is kept separate and specific oak barrels are selected and matched with each vineyard to further add to the complexity and enjoyment."
-Winemaker Greg Graham

About Rombauer Vineyards:

Rombauer Vineyards was founded in 1982 by Koerner and Joan Rombauer and sits on a tree covered knoll overlooking the Napa Valley. The winery features caves that extend for over a mile into the hillside. The caves provide a constant temperature and humidity which result in optimum conditions for aging our wines.

Rombauer wines are consistently ranked high in the wine trade journals. Many of the finest restaurants throughout the country include Rombauer wines on their list and feature them by the glass. The joy of wine is something that's important to Rombauer. Whether you are a collector of fine wines or like to have wine with food, wine is something that truly should be enjoyed. Rombauer Vineyards puts a lot of hard work and tender care into making drinkable wines. And because wine is a simple product to enjoy, emphasis is given to taking the mystique out of enjoying fine wines.

Our emphasis on the joy of wine comes from the heritage of the Rombauer family. Koerner's ancestors made wine in the famous Rheingau region in Germany and his great aunt, Irma Rombauer, wrote the book The Joy of Cooking. Hence our focus on wine as complements to good food and good friends. Every family member is actively involved in the day to day operation of the winery from selecting grapes for the winemaking process and getting the wine to market.
