Winemaker Notes

All components of this cuvee are deeply pitched in both color and aromatics. The enticing black color of this wine gives the assurance of ripe grape skins and soft tannins. Perfectly delineated are the aromas of fresh red berries and site specific aromatics such as black licorice and fresh black cherry juice. The tannins are silky and the mouth feel is one of the rich and full bodied phenolics. This soft tannin structure frames the ageability and reasssures continued complexity during bottle ageing. This complex wine was only racked once for blending and bottling and was bottled in March 2006 without fining or filtration. The 2004 IX Estate Napa Valley Red Wine will continue to improve for decades or will drink well in 2 to 5 years near term.

Blend: 59% Cabernet Sauvignon, 22% Merlot, 13% Cabernet Franc, 6% Petit Verdot

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
RP 98
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2004 IX Proprietary Red Wine (1,258 cases from a blend of 59% Cabernet Sauvignon, 22% Merlot, 13% Cabernet Franc, and 6% Petit Verdot) is amazing out of bottle. Flamboyant, super-fragrant aromas of graphite, creme de cassis, espresso roast, flowers, and the entire black and blue fruit spectrum jump from the glass of this gorgeous wine. In the mouth, silky tannin and a multi-dimensional, skyscraper-like mouthfeel are offered without heaviness or coarseness. This totally profound wine exhibits what a great site, extraordinary winemaking, and a commitment to excellence can produce. It should drink well for two decades.
WS 93
Wine Spectator
Rich and tightly focused, with a pure beam of spicy cherry, sweet wild berry and plum-laced fruit that's supported by firm, structured tannins. Closed in on the finish, with fresh earth, dill and sage notes. Best from 2009 through 2017.

Undoubtedly proving its merit over and over, Napa Valley is a now a leading force in the world of prestigious red wine regions. Though Cabernet Sauvignon dominates Napa Valley, other red varieties certainly thrive here. Important but often overlooked include Merlot and other Bordeaux varieties well-regarded on their own as well as for their blending capacities. Very old vine Zinfandel represents an important historical stronghold for the region and Pinot noir is produced in the cooler southern parts, close to the San Pablo Bay.

Perfectly situated running north to south, the valley acts as a corridor, pulling cool, moist air up from the San Pablo Bay in the evenings during the hot days of the growing season, which leads to even and slow grape ripening. Furthermore the valley claims over 100 soil variations including layers of volcanic, gravel, sand and silt—a combination excellent for world-class red wine production.
