The 2004 Cariad Proprietary Red Wine is a 637-case blend of 54% Cabernet Sauvignon, 28% Merlot, 10% Petit Verdot, and 8% Cabernet Franc. It borders on perfection. An extraordinarily complex bouquet of creme de cassis, blackberries, roasted herbs, meat juices, flowers, and subtle oak is followed by a powerful, rich, pure wine with a finish that lasts nearly 60 seconds. The tannin is silky and the wine is seamlessly constructed. Itâ_Ts difficult to suggest an optimum window of drinkability since it is already showing well, but this extremely young Napa red should evolve for 15-20 years. Not yet released. Tel.

A big, rich, flavorful style, with tiers of plum, black cherry and blackberry fruit, accented by anise, sage and dusty oak flavors. Yet for all its size, this is impeccably balanced, with a long, deep, persistent finish that keeps the focus on the fruit. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Best from 2009 through 2020. 673 cases made. –JL
