Tasting Notes

A deep garnet with slight purple hue, this Cabernet Sauvignon exhibits dark aromas of blackberry, black currant, and dark chocolate with hints of mocha and smoke. The silky tannins lead to a long finish which completes the beautiful density on the palate.

Vineyard Notes

Our 134-acre estate lies in the heart of the Stags Leap District, the first viticultural area in the United States to be approved based on the distinctiveness of its soils. With 28 distinctive vineyard blocks showing an array of different aspects, soil types, clones and rootstocks, our vineyard provides a diversity of flavors that are artfully blended to capture the holistic representation of our estate Cabernet Sauvignon.

Production Notes

Short and sweet summarizes the 2004 vintage. It was one fastest and earliest of the decade starting in August, two to three weeks earlier than normal. With a crush of excellent quality fruit and yields per acre that were normal to light, the vintage brought high quality wines in limited quantities.
