Ahnfeldt Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2004
This is a Gold Medal Wine Club Platinum Series selection. Ahnfeldt’s 2004 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is an elegant estate wine blended from two of the winery’s most desirable vineyards in the southerly, cooler portions of Napa, the Monticello Vineyard and the Kreuse Canyon Hillside. One of Ahnfeldt’s flagship wines, this well structured Cabernet Sauvignon was awarded 90 Points by Wine Enthusiast magazine. Flavors of cherry, cedar, black cherry, rose water, subtle earthiness and cassis come alive in the soft, enticing entry and develop into a medium to full bodied wine. The Ahnfeldt Cabernet Sauvignon is smooth from start to end with mouth filling tannins and excellent balance. A food-friendly wine with reverberating flavors, the 2004 vintage is loaded with fruit, balance, and quality tannins, which lead into a satisfying lengthy finish. This crowd-pleasing wine pairs deliciously with hearty New York steaks, meatloaf, and beef tenderloin. Aged 22 months in oak. 83% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot, 1% Cabernet Franc, 1% Petit Verdot. Enjoy now until 2014.
This wine is the bomb.. The only reason I don't give it 5 glasses is because its peaking right now.. This is a fully mature big bodied incredibly smooth well balanced mouth watering treasure of a wine. It will hold on for a couple more years but you usually have to pay $50 to $100 for a california cab of this quality.
