The 2004 Cabernet Sauvignon exhibits an opaque ruby/purple hue followed by pure, unevolved, black currant, raspberry, crushed rock, and spring flower-like notes. Very primary, it tastes more like a barrel sample than a finished wine, but it possesses enormous potential because of its combination of elegance, structure, and intensity. It should be forgotten for 7-8 years, and drunk over the following three decades.
Deep ruby. Intense cherry and blackcurrant on the nose, with vibrant minerality adding lift. Licorice and sweet chewing tobacco flavors complement chewy dark berries and kirsch, with slow-building tannins adding support without detracting from the fruit. Gained ripeness and depth with air while maintaining energy.
Here’s one to put away for a while. Even though the warm vintage coaxed out oodles of black currants, blackberry and cherry pie filling, red plum and dry, unsweetened chocolate flavors, the wine has a tannic intensity that makes it a bit astringent. But it’s balanced and well-structured, so cellar, and should be best 2009-2012.
