Winemaker's Notes:

Vintage 2004 gave us wines that we have been looking forward to since we replanted the vineyard in the mid-nineties (sounds so long ago). Mature vines make tasty wines and our vineyards are growing up. There’s just a bit of teenage angst evident in the mid-palate, but we all know that goes away with a little aging (in humans and wine). Here at Michel-Schlumberger, we strive to make wines that showcase not only our Estate, but Dry Creek Valley as well. Our efforts are well presented in this classically crafted cabernet. Our 2004 Cabernet Sauvignon displays a strong memory for its origin—classic M-S Cab with all the layers and spice-driven fruit that you’ve come to appreciate from the wine we are known for. Allspice, nutmeg, clove, raspberry, and plum all make an appearance in the forefront of this wine. These all roll into the viscous middle that showcases the verve this one barely contains. Similar to our 2000 Cabernet, it finishes with a distinct well-steeped tea quality that implies age worthiness and class.
