Fleury Estate Winery Port Blend Rutherford P 2004

Member Review by gabrielbirnie:

Fantastic effort from a boutique winery that’s becoming one of Napa’s best. The fruit is massive; huge and inky with chocolate notes. Very nice pairing with blue cheese or with a cigar.

Current releases include a Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, a Zinfandel/Cabernet blend, three Cabernet Sauvignons and a Port. The Fleury flagship wine is "Passionne," a Bordeaux-style blend that is always the first to sell out.
