95 percent Cabernet Sauvignon, 5 percent Petit Verdot and Malbec.
The 2004 was a blockbuster, thanks to an exceptional growing season and a great deal of diligent work in the vineyard that allowed for protracted hang times. The wine fully captures the 2004 fruit’s impenetrably deep color and extremely dense, complex flavors.

94 Points - Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate
“…the full-bodied, dense 2004 offers notes of blackberries, blueberries, espresso roast, and smoky oak, a super-rich mouthfeel, good freshness and purity, and enough acidity and tannin to provide structure as well as definition. It will be delicious young but should become more civilized in 4-5 years, and keep for two decades.”
96 Points - Jim Laube, The Wine Spectator
“Rich and concentrated, with a generous mix of currant, blackberry, wild berry, and mocha-laced oak. Intense, yet avoids being heavy, turning sleek and elegant. Deftly balanced and tightly focused, with a complex, lingering finish that ends with hints of herb and black olive.”
