2004 Estate Bottled Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
This intensely inky-colored Cabernet Sauvignon wine is grown in the well-drained, stoney and iron-rich soils of the Weir Family Vineyard along the Silverado Trail; one mile south of the famed Stags’ Leap appellation and ten yards from the Oak Knoll District - the Valley’s newest sub-appellation. The rich, spicy nose of bakers’ chocolate and black cherry compliments the brooding and spice-filled black licorice, black cherry, plum and cranberry on the palate. The addition of 10% Cabernet Franc enhances the complexity of the wine, as well as adding to our trademark robust and silky mid-palate. Aged for 20 months in small French and American oak cooperage, our Cabernet Sauvignon will flourish with bottle age. This newest wine is surely a treasure to keep for many years in your personal cellar.
