2004 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
California: Napa Valley
The King's Ransom
Welcome to another Elite Operative Saturday. Each Saturday, we showcase an ultra-premium wine - at an exclusive discount.
Today, we are very proud to be featuring a delectable, classic Napa Valley Cabernet from Noble Wines. Their perfectly-aged 2004 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon took our entire tasting panel by storm. Bold and rich, without being overpowering, this wine shows perfect balance. Impeccably aged, this delicious Cabernet is ready to drink, now, but it also shows additional aging potential. We’d recommend laying a few bottles down for the next few years.
The 2004 vintage was a stunner for Napa Cabernet, having earned a giant 94 Points - and we give this wine our heartiest recommendation.
Pair with a ribeye steak with melted bleu cheese or a spelt souffle with asparagus and wild mushrooms.
Dark ruby red, deep, and opaque at the core of the wine. At the very edge of the glass, a soft hue of brick red glistens.
Intense aromas including dried dark cherry, dark chocolate, blueberry, vanilla and dark toffee, layered over black licorice, cigar box, and a soft hint of caramel.
Silky and rich with prominent flavors of caramel and blueberry. As the wine opens up it reveals deeper aromas of cinnamon, mixed spice, dark cocoa dust and a hint of earthy minerals.
Long, dark, and elegant with a gradually drying and slightly sweet ending.
