Robert Parker 91
The 2004 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate spent 24 months in 50% new French oak. There is a small quantity of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot included in the blend. Deep crimson-colored, it gives up an alluring perfume of pain grille, spice box, tar, black currant, and blackberry liqueur. This is followed by a harmonious, well-integrated wine reminiscent of a classified growth Saint-Julien from a good vintage. This elegantly rendered wine will develop in bottle for 8-10 years and provide pleasure through 2030.
Anticipated maturity: 2015-2030
