International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 132

($165) Deep ruby. Vibrant, pure aromas of black raspberry and violet. Sweet, primary and sophisticated, with a lovely lightness of touch for a 2004. Very fresh cabernet with a building finish featuring suave, rich tannins and outstanding length. From fruit picked under more moderate conditions than the merlot, which came in during the heat spike at the beginning of September.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 168

There are 1,300 cases of the 2004 Cabernet Sauvignon Paradise Hills Vineyard. Boasting delicious fudge-like aromas intermixed with blackberry, coffee bean, and pain grille scents, this super-rich, full-bodied effort displays a Graves-like, volcanic, scorched earth/hot stone element in its flavors. With moderately high tannin, it will benefit from 2-3 years of bottle age, and should drink well over the following two decades. Both 2004s have put on considerable weight and performed significantly stronger out of bottle than they did from cask. Not yet released.

Tight, with spicy currant, herb, cedar, mineral and herbal leather notes. Complex but restrained, this is balanced, yet leaves you hoping for more richness and depth. Needs air.

Decanted this one and tasted at pop, an hour in and then three hours in. Wasn't all that tasty until three hours- seemed tight and rather dull fruit. After three hours, it really opened. Perfumed nose with floral notes as well as port and cedar. This wine was a good solid cab, but not exceptional like other Blankiet bottles have been. This is drinking fine now and is unlikely to improve but it will last for another 8+.

Drinking very well. Rich dark and musty with velvet tannin and moderate finish.

Tight, with spicy currant, herb, cedar, mineral and herbal leather notes. Complex but restrained, this is balanced, yet leaves you hoping for more richness and depth. Needs air. Best from 2009 through 2013. 1,300 cases made

VinoDeparture Trust Rating: 98 Tasted On: 05/14/2010

Big, dense, age-worthy Cabernet Sauvignon. Dark purple color on rim continues with hues of violets and blues throughout the wine bowl. Huge volumes of aromas rise from the glass: blackberry, espresso, graphite, dark chocolate, toffee and cassis. The entry explodes with flavor and then wine opens in the center with weighty richness and finishes with focus. Long finish of black truffle and blackberries.

Tanic and young. Needs time.
