Winemakers Notes: Our 2004 Estate Cabernet Sauvignon is complex and finely structured with a classic varietal aroma of ripe blackcurrants joined by cedar box, green pepper and sweet oak scents. Youthful and compact, its well-extracted cassis, cola, and black licorice flavors add an intriguing pepper-spice character in the long, fresh finish. Delicious now, this classic Cabernet Sauvignon will continue developing in the bottle for another 5-7 years.
