A blend of 52% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot, and 13% Cabernet Franc, the 2004 Facets of Gemstone exhibits a similar character, but more mocha, black cherry, chocolate, and espresso-like notes, a plumper, more lush sweetness (no doubt because of the higher percentage of Merlot), and great aromatics, texture, expansiveness, and length. It should improve for 2-5 years, and drink well for 12-15. (RP)
Smoky, cedary oak aromas lead to a tight, dense core of earthy currant, blackberry, mineral and sage. Compact and concentrated, this is chewy and rustic at this stage, but complex and persistent on the finish. (JL)
