Napa Valley 2004

The 2004 vintage produced a crop of solid, dense, ripe Cabernets with plenty of power, richness, and longevity. It was an early harvest that was compact and proceeded at a rapid pace, with most growers finished by the end of September.

The season got off to a fast start, with bloom almost a month earlier than the recent average. It stayed early right through veraison, and as harvest approached and sugars raced, there was concern whether there would be enough hang-time for physiological ripeness to develop before the acids fell. The heat moderated just enough for growers to hang on while flavors developed and the resulting wines have depth, power, and richness. Hillside and mountain fruit fared very well.

Overall an excellent vintage that yielded superb, full-bodied, ripe, and powerful wines that are built to last.
