Corté-Riva Cabernet Sauvignon 2004
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
A dark ruby color, this Cabernet Sauvignon was aged for 18 months in French Oak barrels, 75% new. This well balanced wine has great structure. It is full bodied, yet elegant and refined. It has an intense nose of blackberry and black cherry, dark chocolate and sweet integrated oak. The flavors continue through the mid palate with the addition of spice and fine soft tannin.
Intense floral and dusty and cedary oak flavors lead to a dried berry and wood character on the palate. Drink now through 2011. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 800 cases made.
