2004 Cabernet Sauvignon, Jericho Canyon
Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
May/ June 2008
Inky purple. Graphite- and tobacco-accented cherry and cassis aromas reminded me of top-end Saint-Julien. Focused, pure red- and blackcurrant flavors are energized by impressive mineral lift. This remarkably concentrated cabernet finishes with firm but harmonious tannins and explosive sweetness.
