Seavey Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2004
Notes on the Seavey Cabernet Sauvignon Estate Napa Valley 2004 : WINE SPECTATOR REVIEW: 93 POINTS Firm and structured, with ripe, vivid, aromatic currant, floral, fresh earth, spice and hazelnut-scented oak. Everything folds together, in a sleek yet muscular package that offers rich, intense tannins, but also excellent balance. Best from 2009 through 2018. 896 cases made. October 15, 2007 JLWINE ADVOCATE REVIEW: 94 POINTS There are 905 cases of the 2004 Cabernet Sauvignon (100% Cabernet Sauvignon). Full-bodied and powerful with velvety tannin, fabulous intensity, and stunning aromas of smoked herbs, charcoal embers, chocolate, creme de cassis, and minerals, it is a rich, voluptuously textured wine that admirably hides its serious tannin levels. It will unquestionably keep for two decades or more. WA # , #168 (Dec 2006) Drink 2006 - 2026 Robert ParkerSEAVEY CABERNET SAUVIGNON ESTATE NAPA VALLEY 2004
Ripe, vivid aromatics of currant, florals and hazelnut-scented oak. Sleek yet muscular package with rich intense tannins all in balance. Sweet fruit and oak on the nose, nearly pinot scented. Great structure and balance between bold tannin and extremely ripe fruit. - Tasted at Marché Bacchus 4/24/10
External Reviews for Seavey Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley
Dark, rich and concentrated, with beautifully defined and ripe black cherry and blackberry fruit. Gains intensity and shows a firm wall of tannins on the finish, but they're ripe and plush, letting the fruit push forward. Needs cellaring. Best from 2005 through 2014.
The 1999 Cabernet Sauvignon reveals an opaque purple color in addition to a sweet, highly-extracted bouquet of black fruits, coffee, chocolate, cedar, and plum aromas. Silky yet assertive tannin, full body, exceptional concentration and purity, and a dense, layered finish further characterize this wine. Anticipated maturity: 2005-2020.
The 1996 Cabernet Sauvignon is superb. The opaque purple-colored effort reveals aromas of black currant, creosote, smoke, minerals, and plums. It is full-bodied, with exquisite density and terrific fruit purity and intensity, particularly in the mid-palate and length (always good signs of wines that are meant to improve and last). There is a plenty of tannin, but this is a generous, impressively endowed wine that should stand the test of several decades of cellaring.
A potential super-star in the making is the 2001 Cabernet Sauvignon. It gets my vote as the finest wine made at this estate since the 1997, and it should have the longevity of their monumental 1991. Sadly, only 1,500 cases were produced from a blend of 95% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Petit Verdot. It should be called a vin de garde (a wine for aging) as it is a tightly-knit, powerful, enormously-endowed offering with huge tannin, monster extract, and rich, intense black currant, tar, blackberries, loamy soil, and licorice flavors. Closed, broodingly rich, and large-scaled, this 2001 possesses nearly unlimited upside potential, but patience will be a virtue. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2028.
Seavey has produced some exceptional Cabernet Sauvignons, and I predict the 1995 will be an unexpected winner in many blind tastings. it is performing even better this year than it did last, hence my elevated score. The color is an opaque purple. The wine displays a fantastic nose of classic black currants intermixed with cigar box and cedar scents. In the mouth, it is full-bodied and backward, but persuasively rich,layered and marvelously well-balanced. There is a deep, sweet mid-palate and explosive ripeness and richness in the long, heady finish. A sleeper pick in this outstanding vintage, it should evolve effortlessly for 20-30 years.
Readers looking for a St.-Estephe look-alike should check out this brooding, monster Cabernet Sauvignon from Bill Seavey and winemaker Philippe Melka. Tasting nearly the same as it did eight years ago, it reveals stunning, sweet chocolaty notes interwoven with notions of burning embers, loamy soil, black currants and forest floor. The complex aromatics are followed by a full-bodied, powerful, backward wine that still needs 8-10 years of cellaring. This blend of 95% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Petit Verdot from the dry-farmed hillside vineyards of Bill and the late Mary Seavey is a 35-50 year wine. Only for true connoisseurs and those with patience!
