Vintage 2004
Wine Type Red
Varietal Cabernet Sauvignon
Region Napa Valley
Winemaker Jeffrey Stambor

This is a handcrafted wine in every sense of the word. Medium-full bodied, it has great textural richness and length on the palate, with firm, rich tannins melting into intense flavors of dark cherry, blackberry, mocha and roasted coffee.

Winemaker's Note

Hand harvesting of the clusters, cold soaking of the must for flavor extraction and gentle punch-downs in open-top fermentors all contributed to the rich flavor expression and plush tannin structure of clone 4 in this wine. After gentle pressing, we transferred the wine to new French oak barrels for in-barrel malolactic fermentation followed by 20 months of aging.
