Kasuari Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

2004 offered a long and even growing season and yielded deep wines with soft, mouth-filling tannins. A bold mix of classic Cabernet flavors unfold in the glass with lavish plum, blackberry and cassis fruit accompanied coffee, chocolate and toffee typical of hillside fruit. New French oak barrels from the Nevers and Troncais used during aging add spice and sage aromas. Match this Cabernet Sauvignon with full flavored dishes including beef, lamb and duck. While this wine will age gracefully beyond ten years, we recommend decanting several hours in advance if consumed before 2009.

Kasuari has embarked on a mission to make wines of the highest caliber from the greatest and proven California appellations: Cabernet Sauvignon and Zinfandel from Napa Valley and across Sonoma County, Pinot Noir from the Sonoma Coast and Russian River Valley and Syrah from Sonoma County. Using an old world approach we feel that flavors begin in the vineyard and that the terrior is specific to each variety. We have chosen each vineyard to yield the highest quality grapes possible. With careful attention in the vineyard, we monitor the grapevine’s balance and crop load to ensure the highest quality. In the winery natural winemaking practices are used in a quest to make artistic, handcrafted wines that reflect our passion to provide the most enjoyable wine drinking experience. Each wine is hand crafted with naturally occurring yeast handling the fermentations. We gently destem all fruit and often put whole clusters in the fermenter! Never fined or filtered these wines represent the vineyard and terrior as it should be at its very best! Our wines are available in very limited quantities and are suitable for any occasion.

GREAT Wine.... It's now 4 years old and is tasting better as time goes by. I have opened 4 bottles so far.
