The 2003 vintage only amplified these challenges. Ripe and plump on the nose, it is broad and complex, revealing oriental spices, cocoa, coffee, and black fruit.

Ripe fruit and very good acidity, along with great depth and definition define this wine.

This Classic Sangiovese features up front aromas of dried peaches and apricots, while the undertones of strawberries and cherries give it a rich and well balanced mouth feel.

The selected grapes used in this wine were grown at an altitude of 1500 feet on Atlas Peak road.  The blend consists of 85% Sangiovese and 15% Cabernet Sauvignon.

The vinification was performed in 225 liter French oak barrels, with an additional  2 years aging in the oak and 2 years in the bottle. The result is a wine with a smooth mouth feel  and a long finish.

The warm summer days of 2004, combined with cool evenings provided a perfect growing season for our Cabernet Sauvignon fruit. The concentrated, well ripened berries resulted in a dark red wine, with complex flavors of cassis, black currant and Bing cherries.

The wine spent 2 years in small French oak barrels, and aged another 30 months in the bottle, resulting in a luscious wine with moderate tannins and well balanced acidity.

The blend consists of 90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Merlot and 2 % Cabernet Franc.

Enjoy the long awaited 2004 Cabernet Sauvignon with your favorite summer barbeque.
