The 2004 Cabernet Sauvignon Backus Vineyard, from a steep hillside site in the low end of the Vaca mountains, across from Rudd Vineyards and Screaming Eagle, boasts an inky/purple color along with remarkably sweet tannins, especially for Backus, which tends to be a forbiddingly backward style of Cabernet.

A deep rich profound Cabernet with ripe plush currant black cherry and ripe plum fruit that's well-focused supple and harmonious. This is intense and powerful yet elegant and refined with amazing structure depth and length. Best from 2008 through 2017. 1500 cases made. –JL
