Winemaker's Notes:

Full of life and energy, the wine is intense; it expresses ripe flavors of black currant, Asian spices, earthy characters, mocha and ripe cherry. Lush and rich in the attack, the wine carries on with amazing purity and depth finishing with powerful soft tannins and aromas of white chocolate and licorice. The wine changes constantly in the glass bringing more nuances and excitement each time. This is a superb expression of great Cabernet from Soda Canyon just south of Stags Leap District in Napa Valley.

"The elegant, dark ruby/purple-colored 2004 Cabernet Sauvignon (100% Cabernet Sauvignon) reveals hints of white chocolate, black currants, ripe mountain berries, loamy soil, and earthy characteristics. Medium to full-bodied, with loads of structure and tannin as well as excellent purity, richness, and length, it will benefit from 1-3 years of bottle age, and should drink nicely for 10-15 years.

Charles and Shirley Roy own this 16.5 acre vineyard planted in Napa Valley's Soda Canyon area. Eight-hundred cases of primarily Cabernet Sauvignon (small quantities of Petit Verdot may be added in certain vintages) are typically produced each year."

My Notes:

About Roy Estate:

On the eastern side of Napa Valley, in the foothills of the Vaca Mountains, there is a secluded vineyard - the vineyard of Roy Estate. The mission of Roy Estate is to produce the very best wines possible from this tiny valley within a valley.

As the proprietors of Roy Estate, we think of ourselves as caretakers of this special property. We feel privileged to be entrusted with its care.

Our first wines, the 2004 Estate Grown Cabernet Sauvignon & 2004 Estate Grown Proprietary Red Wine, were released in 2007.
