Cakebread Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley Vine Hill Ranch 2004
Cakebread Cellars is located in the heart of the Napa Valley on Highway 29 between Oakville and Rutherford. Family owned and operated for 36 years, we pride ourselves on making full flavored, balanced and elegant wines.
Cakebread never really disappoints but the 2004 compared to the 2005 was not as robust as expected - stick with the 2005 and you cannot go wrong - wait another year or two and it will be perfect!!
one of my favorite wines !!!! full-bodied. gives an awesome after taste.

A supple structure of fine tannins is well-integrated with the wine's ripe fruit and fresh acidity, leading to a finish full of rich dark chocolate and blackberry flavors.

The 2004 Vine Hill Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon boasts intense, concentrated aromas of dusty black fruits, ripe figs, violets, dark chocolate, warm baking spices and minerals. The big, concentrated palate delivers impressively deep, expansive flavors of cassis, black fig, spicy blackberry, and chocolate with an intriguing streak of minerality asserting itself in the long, firmly structured finish. Although this powerful, single-vineyard Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is difficult to resist now, especially with grilled red meats, it will cellar beautifully for another 8-10 years.
