Excellent cabernet. Had shown very poorly at the winery over the last couple of years (closed, off flavors). Now has opened up into a wine full of ripe cherries and cassis. Good balance and length. Will last a couple more years with no problem.
If I had more, I'd wait and hope; this wine showed quite poorly in a blind tasting of 9 '04 Napa Valley cabs -- but, tellingly, the winner was a ringer, an '00 Stags Leap; this is not drinking well right now -- smells like asparagus, is disjointed and out-of-focus, and has little structure
