Mount St. Helena Cabernet Sauvignon 2004
Varietal Composition: 79% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Cabernet Franc, 4% Merlot, and 2% Malbec.
In making a wine, we may focus on varietal expression or we may focus on the nature of site. We are intrigued with each of these directions. Our Source-Napa wines emphasize the nature of site. Our new Mount St. Helena Brand wines showcase the varietal fruit essence of our grape types. To accomplish this, we bring together individual lots from across our appellation to create fruit-oriented, flavorful wines that speak of their varietal definition. We focus on wines made from the Bordeaux varieties. And also the Charbono variety that was once widely planted across Napa. There are only 37 acres planted today, and we enjoy bringing our attention to this lost variety.
The Napa Valley and Cabernet Sauvignon are so intrinsically linked that it is difficult to discuss one without thinking of the other. Although Cabernet has many important outposts throughout the wine world, nowhere else has it achieved such success (and, at the highest end, commanded such lofty prices) than in Napa. Here, it is responsible for bold, opulent, and dark-fruited wines with grippy tannins and a healthy dose of alcohol. The best examples can age for decades. Each of Napa’s smaller sub-AVAs imparts a different character to Cabernet, such as Rutherford’s famous dust or Stags Leap District's tart cherry flavors.
