The 2004 Cabernet Sauvignon Cinq Cepages is a blend of 77% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Merlot, 7% Cabernet Franc and the rest Malbec and Petit Verdot. A big sweet kiss of incense, bay leaf, white chocolate, black cherries, black currants and a touch of smoke jump from the glass of this opaque purple-colored wine. Rich and concentrated, this comes across as one of the best vintages I have tasted of Cinq Cepages. There are still some light tannins in the finish and this wine, while clearly entering its period of maturity, has at least another 15 years of cellaring potential. - Robert Parker

Fans of CC will find a wine with the balance of previous vintages. It refuses to be a fruit bomb but offers a wealth of sumptuous blackberry and cherry liqueur flavors that pull back at the last moment under a blanket of youthful tannins. Not a long-term ager but should hold for 6 years and is easy to find with more than 13000 cases produced. S.H.

Underneath the smoke of this wine's meaty black tannin there's a high-toned red fruit character hinting at earthy roots and eucalyptus. A lamb chop will absorb some of the tannin and bring out the wine's elegance.

Aromas of blackberry espresso dark chocolate and wild herbs scent the big expressive nose. Supple on the palate with tannins that are well-integrated at this stage yet this retains enough structure to keep it going for another ten years or more. Notes of plum and black cherry dance across the mid-palate while the tannins drive the dry precise finish. A bit more fruit-forward than some vintages this still retains Cinq Cepage's classic Bordeaux style.
