($240) Saturated deep ruby. Reticent but pure aromas of black raspberry, cassis, licorice and minerals. A major mouthful of wine but ultimately less dense and sweet than the 2005. Sound acidity gives the fruit a racy quality and imbues the wine with energy. Finishes with huge, broad, chocolatey tannins.

Perhaps the wine that jumped the most in score from when I first tasted these wines out of bottle in 2008, is the 2004 Cabernet Sauvignon Pluribus. Rated 94 back in 2008, it's now a solid 98 and knocking on the door of perfection. This wine comes from a Spring Mountain vineyard northwest of the charming town of St. Helena. It has gorgeous notes of graphite, acacia flowers, blueberry liqueur, scorched earth and hot stones. Reminiscent of a top Graves, it is another full-bodied, rich, concentrated wine with good acidity as well as fabulous purity and concentration. I had not seen the Graves-like character in this wine prior to bottling and post-bottling, but it is there now. This stunner is open for business and its fragrance and suppleness suggest drinking it over the next two decades.

A rich, opulent, fleshy style, brimming with ripe black cherry, wild berry and currant flavors that are supple and well-focused, keeping the fruit well-centered and ending with ripe tannins that have a nice earthy, cedary edge. There's wonderful length on the finish.

Opened and decanted. Red-black color with no hint of age. Aromas of flowers and black fruits very pronounced - wonderful nose! On the palate, very powerful wine with lots of fruit and tannin, and though the fruit is forward, all very well integrated; also some chocolate overtones. A lengthy finish ... capable of lasting another 20 years? Exceptional!
