Wine Review: I was pretty impressed by this organic cabernet from Volker Estate. This very dark purple wine opens with a forward blackberry bouquet. On the palate, this medium bodied wine is round, juicy, and noticeably dry. It displays concentrated black cherry like flavors. The finish is quite dry and sails on for quite some time. This is an impressive effort and a truly enjoyable wine. Cheers - Ken

Winemaker Notes: The 2004 Cabernet Sauvignon has 14% Merlot blended in for palate softness and complexity of aromas. The wine is rich in color, varietally pure in flavor, and well balanced on the palate. The wine has a long future, but can be enjoyed today.
