The 2004 Croze wine will surpass all your expectations of Napa Cabernet. There is finesse, balance, and yes, all the true old world charm a varietally correct Cabernet can offer. You are met with sunny wildflower and musk aromas that are structured together with a blast of fresh ground pink peppercorns. The flavors have incredibly harmonious elements of worn saddle leather and rivers of fresh, blood red cassis.
Grapes for the 2004 came from Robbins Vineyard just south of St. Helena. This sweet spot for Cabernet produces long-lasting, well structured, elegant wines. Its rich fruit and hints of spice make it enjoyable now.
In keeping with the winemaker’s philosophy and style, 2004 Croze is very drinkable now, but this intriguing Cabernet Sauvignon has the ideal balance for a graceful and long lived wine. It may take years to reach full potential and is a natural with a thick steak or roasted meats. It’s also perfect with anything Chocolate. Croze is always at its best when shared with a friend.
