2004 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Solari Reserve

Winemaker Notes

100% Estate grown fruit at Larkmead Vineyards
90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Petit Verdot
Aged in 70% new French oak barrels for 20 months

"Bright ruby/purple. Explosively aromatic high notes of wild berries and violet with a smoky-mocha edge. The palate is powerfully rich yet supple and lively and features saturated cassis and blackberry fruit with the classic gravel-mineral-graphite character of the vineyard. The broad voluptuous tannins are completely integrated with the fruit and allow the wine to progress gracefully along the palate and finish with a hint of developing truffle complexity and sweet tobacco. Decant for an hour in its youth to experience the wine's full range of flavors."
