A recent visitor to the Château Potelle Tasting Room, spotting a bottle of Zin VGS, exclaimed in delight "That's the one! We live in Seoul, Korea, and friends who were visiting from London brought us a bottle of wine that was unforgettable. I have traveled half way round the world to find it!" All of the VGS wines turn heads, make news, and earn Château Potelle it's place among the premium wineries in the United States.
I received this wine as a gift. My experience was a medium strong, confident bouquet, with a smooth taste and satisfying finish. I really enjoyed it.
This is a Gold Medal Wine Club Platinum Series selection. The 2004 Chateau Potelle Cabernet Sauvignon VGS – “Very Good Stuff ” – sees an extraordinary influence from its rocky mountain vineyard site that sets it apart from classic Napa Valley winemaking styles. The Cabernet vines work hard on this unique terrain, and that combined with Chateau Potelle’s natural farming and winemaking talents, has truly produced an intense, refined, and forceful wine. Awarded 92 Points – Cellar Selection by Wine Enthusiast magazine, this focused, dense Cabernet Sauvignon has more depth than a typical valley floor wine, and effortlessly fills the mouth with friendly, complex rich fruit flavors. Essences of red berries, chocolate, liquorices and spices evolve on the palate, and as the wine opens, new dimensions and taste sensations deliciously develop in the glass. Try pairing the full-bodied 2004 Chateau Potelle Cabernet Sauvignon VGS with tender steaks, lamb chops, and roast beef. Aged 22 months in oak. 88% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Merlot. Enjoy now until 2014.

The nose is rich, deep and complex presenting redberry, mint, licorice, anis, black pepper and hints of game aromas. All of which are elevated by an elegant integration of French oak and chewy fine-grained tannins.
