($75) Bright medium ruby. Cassis, blueberry, nutty oak and a whiff of camphor on the nose. Juicy, primary and intense, with superb cut to the dark berry and spice flavors. Very young, brisk wine with a serious tannic spine and impressive spicy persistence. This bottling has been getting steadily stronger in recent years.

The classic, opaque ruby/purple-tinged 2004 Cabernet Sauvignon Peterson Family Vineyard exhibits a big nose of forest floor, smoke, licorice, cassis, and fudge. Dense, powerful, and moderately tannic, it may not be as flashy as many 2004s, but it is packed with fruit, glycerin, and power. Give it another year or so of bottle age, and drink it over the following 10-15.

Intense, fleshy, racy yet intriguing, with zesty wild berry, blackberry, anise and pleasant earth notes, joined by cedary oak. Not much finesse or subtlety, but this packs in lots of flavor. 490 cases made.

Potential, but still a lot of baby fat here. Rich and ripe with a nice acidic backbone, but nearly too rich. A few more years may mellow it a bit and bring out the character. Or maybe not

Rich, oppulent cab with extracted fruit. Serious stuff.
