Smith-Madrone is a winery that's been first quality Cabernet from their Spring Mountain estate since the '70's. Now their vines are 30+ years old, planted on a steep hillside in the red volcanic soil, 1,900 feet up. The roots go deep and the yields are low. Only about 2,000 cases of this Estate 2004 Cab were produced. A blend of 82% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Merlot and 11% Cabernet Franc aged 22 months in new American oak. Tannins have softened after a couple of years of aging in the bottle and the complexity is blossoming. Wine Enthusiast rated this wine 93 points saying "This is the opposite of those gooey, cult-style wines grown down on the valley benches and floor. It’s pure mountain in the tannins, acidity and dryness, with below 14% alcohol. It’s a food wine, with cassis, cedar and mineral flavors. Should age well for a decade." On Sale!
