Grgich Hills Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2004
trademark bouquet of intense cassis and cedar, followed by more subtle nuances of roses, licorice, and dried cherries. On the palate, rich extraction is balanced by moderate tannins and acidity. Ripe black fruit, plums, and dark cherries harmonize in the mouth with notes of cigar box, anise, and spicy oak to form this elegant, full-bodied wine. The finish is concentrated and persistent, with layers of mocha, caramel, cassis, cherries, and vanilla. This young, structured wine should mature well over the next several years, developing additional complexity and depth of flavor.
Editorial Reviews for Grgich Hills Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley
A freaking fruit bomb, texturally plush, viscous and mouth filling, with waves of dark, sweet fruit flavors, spicy oak tones and lovely nuanced chili and herb accents that are pure and deep. This is open for business in an opulent, friendly in your face style. Too much wine for me! 84pts
Huge red fruit and vanilla nose. Acidic and big with even more vanilla on the palate. Tar and oak. Acidic!
Very loud fruit bomb. What it lacks in complexity it makes up for with raw fruity spice.
Too much, much too much. Overly sweet fruit bomb.
Exceptionally fruity, but just beginning to mellow out with a little age. Medium tannins and lower acidity, but it was the fruit that really shone through - thick, treacly, plums and cherries. Some chocolate and cedar helped round the wine out.
Great texture, tastes of currant and citrus. I would pair this with grilled meats.

Most of the fruit for this wine comes from Ggrich’s dry-farmed Yountville vineyard, which went biodynamic the year before. The remainder of the fruit was sourced from the estate’s organic parcels in Rutherford and Calistoga. This is a classic Bordeaux-blended wine, apparently made with little intervention. The red fruit, which has some sweetness and some dried qualities, is in check, in that it’s perfectly ripe without being over-blown. There is a touch of mint and dried herbs in the nose. The wine is nearly perfectly balanced with beautiful acidity, and a bit of astringency on a long finish. Hold onto it for a year to allow it to settle down and then drink it over the next dozen years. The alcohol, listed at 14.7 percent, is not a factor here. The wine spent 21 months in French oak, 60 percent of which was new. There were about 14,000 cases produced.
VINTAGE : An early spring and a warm summer created perfect growing conditions for one of the earliest harvests we've had in 10 years. This produced a small crop of fully-ripe grapes with wonderful concentration and deep flavors. VINEYARD : Our
