It exhibits gorgeous notes of chocolate espresso plums blackberries and cherries. Full-bodied with terrific intensity and opulence it makes a dramatic statement about how great Napa Merlot can be. It should drink beautifully for 15 or more years. Both 2004s have put on considerable weight and performed significantly stronger out of bottle than they did from cask. Not yet released.Previously recommended: 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon Paradise Hills Vineyard (95+) 2003 Merlot Paradise Hills Vineyard (96).Tel. (707) 963-2001; Fax (707) 963-2012

(includes 10% cabernet franc) Deep complex nose combines plum syrup violet tobacco licorice minerals and game there's something quite Bordeaux-like about this. Dry broad suave and seamless with complicating hints of black olive and smoke. This is wonderfully full without being at all heavy. Finishes long and ripe. This will go truffley with bottle aging.
