  • Wine Spectator | Rating: 83

    Chewy and concentrated, with earthy tannins that are dry and astringent, showing little fruit character at this point. This typically needs time to come around, so best to cellar.

    The 2004 Cabernet Sauvignon Gravelly Meadow takes its name from the brown, stony, gravelly soils of this 5-acre vineyard. It possesses that crushed rock, smoky barbecue note that resembles a top-class Pessac-Leognan from Bordeaux. A dark ruby/purple color is followed by wonderfully sweet, concentrated red and black fruits, a certain smoky earthiness, sweet tannin and a textured, full-bodied mouthfeel. This potentially profound red wine can be drunk over the next 20 years. From an aromatic complexity perspective, it may eclipse the Red Rock Terrace. Lastly, the biggest of these single vineyards is the 8-acre site known as Volcanic Hill, whose white tufa volcanic soils are in total contrast to the gravelly soils and red, iron-rich, clay soils of its two siblings.
