Even for a franc-o-file, this is amazing

Deep and bruting depth of fruit and tannins. A touch of sweet bing and dark cherries, baker's chocolate, delicate oak and brambled red and black fruit on the palate. Richness and depth for a wine so young, that it's approach is so soothing with 30-45 minutes of decanting. This is a wine for now or to play with in years to come. This is a wonderfully made wine.

It gets better every time!!!!

I re tasted it today and loved it's richness and complexity. You can drink it today or save it for years.

Best Cabernet I've tried from the 2004 vintage!

I tasted this wine against Modavi's '04 Cabernet Reserve and '04 Phelps Insignia and it blew me away. Each wine got better the longer they were opened, but in the end...Exposure was the richest, most complex, and my favorite hands down!

One of California's finest Cabernets

I think this is going to be a cult wine very soon. buy it now while you can..

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.
