Perhaps the wine that jumped the most in score from when I first tasted these wines out of bottle in 2008, is the 2004 Cabernet Sauvignon Pluribus. Rated 94 back in 2008, it’s now a solid 98 and knocking on the door of perfection. This wine comes from a Spring Mountain vineyard northwest of the charming town of St. Helena. It has gorgeous notes of graphite, acacia flowers, blueberry liqueur, scorched earth and hot stones. Reminiscent of a top Graves, it is another full-bodied, rich, concentrated wine with good acidity as well as fabulous purity and concentration. I had not seen the Graves-like character in this wine prior to bottling and post-bottling, but it is there now. This stunner is open for business and its fragrance and suppleness suggest drinking it over the next two decades. (RP)
A rich, opulent, fleshy style, brimming with ripe black cherry, wild berry and currant flavors that are supple and well-focused, keeping the fruit well-centered and ending with ripe tannins that have a nice earthy, cedary edge. There's wonderful length on the finish. (JL)
Dark ruby-red. Slightly high-toned aromas of black cherry, licorice, minerals and espresso. Densely packed and distinctly large-scaled, with its deep sweetness nicely leavened by a savory quality. Finishes hugely tannic but chocolatey-sweet and energetic. This wine includes bits of Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Merlot. I suspect that it will continue to harmonize with more bottle aging but it's already very sexy. (ST)
