Dark raspberry, toffee, cedar, anise, sweet butter, smoked meat, minerals and nutty oak on the complex, inviting nose. A suave, fine-grained, perfumed midweight with fresh acidity and underlying minerality energizing its cassis, spice and mineral flavors. This wonderfully silky, very long wine boasts a near-perfect integration of fruit, acidity and tannins. The finish leaves the mouth perfumed. Delicious now but built for a long life in bottle.

Production: 8700 cases; Alcohol: 14.4%; Blend: 100% Cabernet Sauvignon; Harvest Dates: September 14 to October 16. This blend of fruit from Steinhauer Ranch (42%) St. Helena Home Vineyard (18%) Bancroft Ranch (15%) Marston Ranch (11%) and the rest tiny quantities from Chabot Vineyard Rancho del Oso and Lampyridae emerged from an unusual growing season for Napa. Heavy rains in February were followed by hot weather in March April and May and cooler than normal weather in June July and August. The harvest began early and finished a short four weeks later an unusually quick harvest. Sweet notes of licorice cedar wood blackberries toast pepper and bay leaf are all present in this big full-bodied opulent lusty California-styled wine. Exotic with loads of fruit and on a fast evolutionary track the 2004 can be drunk now or cellared for another 10-15 years.

Rich dense and chewy with ripe plum blackberry fresh earth and mineral flavors framed by smoky cedary oak. Intense and persistent ending with a mix of cherry and currant fruit. The tannins are firm but ripe. Needs time... Rich dense and chewy with ripe plum blackberry fresh earth and mineral flavors framed by smoky cedary oak. Intense and persistent ending with a mix of cherry and currant fruit. The tannins are firm but ripe. Needs time. Best from 2009 through 2018. 8200 cases made. –JL
