Wine Review: This dark ruby colored wine opens with an attractive blackberry bouquet with a hint of licorice. On the palate, this medium bodied wine is well balanced, elegant, and displays fruit forward cassis and blackberry flavors. The finish is dry and its soft tannins make this easy to drink. The panel noted this Cab would appeal to Aussie Shiraz fans. They suggested pairing it with duck or grilled barbecue steak tips. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Eponymous 2004 benefited from both an excellent growing season. The aromas are at once concentrated and complex, and so well integrated that one has to look for intriguing hints of raspberry, ripe strawberry, cassis, spice and sweet almond. Held to the light, this elegant wine shimmers with a stunning deep purple-scarlet color that announces the intensity of the grape. The palate is equal to the lush color and bold aromas. Flavors mimic the nose, with added nuances of roasted coffee bean, vanilla and nutmeg. This wine is rich, full and round from the initial taste, continuing as it fills the mouth and leads to a long, lingering finish. It has wonderful harmony with soft, accessible tannins adding appropriate structure to this alluring wine.
