2004 Clark-Claudon Napa Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #1033430 93 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark This is a gorgeous Cabernet, but it’s pretty young, and while it’s delicious now due to the ripe fruit, it really needs time. Wrapped in fresh, tight tannins, it displays powerful red and black currant, blackberry, cherry, chocolate and vanilla oak flavors, and shows the elegant, important mouthfeel of a top Napa Cab. Give it until after 2008, if you can keep your hands off, and will come into its own after 2010. Inner quote mark (4/2008)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Wild mountain blackberry, herbs, menthol, forest floor and cocoa notes add up to wonderful Bordeaux-like complexity. Moderately ripe and juicy, with chewy tannins that call for cellaring. 17.5/20 points (LM) Inner quote mark (6/2008)

K&L Notes

The 2004 Clark-Claudon Napa Cabernet Sauvignon blends fruit from all over the winery's estate, combining multiple expressions of the fruit. The higher portions of the estate yielded fruit that was rich, deeply colored with intense tannins. The lower portions of the estate produced softer, more perfumed wine. Together, the grapes blend into a wine that is fragrant, with notes of cassis, violet and cherry and flavorful. Aged for 24 months in French oak, the wine has a fine-grained and silky texture and a persistent chocolate finish.
