Description: What to say about the Cab other than to say "Wow! This is good!". Again this '04 resembles our '02 vintage as a Cabernet that is rich, bold and velvety smooth wine that displays a gorgeous ruby garnet color. A classically structured wine with aromas of black cherry, currant, blackberry, coffee and chocolate. This wine is extremely approachable an with its long, smooth finish, makes this wine a delight to the palate. only 169 cases of this wonderful Cabernet were produced.

Varietal Definition
Cabernet Sauvignon:
Cabernet Sauvignon is the most widely planted and significant among the five dominant varieties in France’s Bordeaux region, as well as the most successful red wine produced in California. Though it was thought to be an ancient variety, recent genetic studies at U.C. Davis have determined that Cabernet Sauvignon is actually the hybrid offspring of Sauvignon Blanc and Cabernet Franc. Cabernet Sauvignon berries are small with black, thick and very tough skin. This toughness makes the grapes fairly resistant to disease and spoilage and able to withstand some autumn rains with little or no damage. It is a mid to late season ripener. These growth characteristics, along with its flavor appeal have made Cabernet Sauvignon one of the most popular red wine varieties worldwide.
