Winemaker's Notes:

The 2004 Cabernet Sauvignon is 100% varietal and was aged for 24 months in the finest French Oak barrels. Blended from a variety of root stocks and clones selected from throughout our 50 acre estate vineyard, this is a complex wine elegantly displaying what a Rutherford grown Cabernet Sauvignon should be. Black currant, blackberry and bing cherry aromas are present on the nose, with additional black cherry, and a hint of mocha present on the palate. The finish is all Rutherford, with soft, delicate tannins providing a smooth, lingering finish. A graceful and refined wine.

About Sawyer Cellars:

In the heart of Napa Valley exists a charming, family-owned winery and estate dating back to the early 1930's. Sawyer Cellars is dedicated to making premium Estate wines, and sharing their unforgettable winery with their guests.

Here's what they like share about their wines: Our wines reflect the unique characteristics of each vintage and of the Rutherford growing district. It begins in the vineyard---as we use only a small percentage of the grapes grown on our estate, the fruit that is perfect to the eye and loaded with flavor. We hire harvest crews chosen for their selective picking techniques, and then we hand sort to insure we are using nothing but the finest fruit. Using gentle, gravity-fed systems in the winery, a judicious use of oak barrel aging in the finest French oak, and daily attention to the wines during aging, we produce the finest wines possible in small, select quantities.
