2004 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon

The 2004 Napa Valley harvest was one of the earliest on record.  For Jarvis Estate, it was a very small, but outstanding vintage for our Cabernet Sauvignon, and worthy of producing a Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon.  After fermentation, the wine was first aged 23 months in new French oak barrels from the Nevers forest.  As he found the wine still too bold, winemaker Dimitri Tchelistcheff put it in another set of new French oak barrels for an additional two months of aging, softening the wine and harmonizing the rich flavors and vanilla undertones.  Once bottled, we carefully aged this Reserve vintage in our cave until perfect for your enjoyment. Dimitri declared it a "100" point wine! Best enjoyed within ten years.

96 Points. Wine Enthusiast. It’s huge in extract, in the form of massively infused blackberries and black currants, cherry liqueur and sweet, smoky cedar wood from 100% new oak, with perfectly ripened tannins and a deft touch of acidity. Defines the voluptuous, Napa cult style. Should age for many years, although it’s soft and delicious enough to drink now.

94 Points. Gold Medal. Beverage Testing Institute. Dense, reserved aromas of cassis custard, honeycomb, rhubarb pie, cocoa, smoked paprika, and earth follow through on a round, supple entry to a dry-yet-fruity medium-to-full body with excellent depth and vibrant structure.  Finishes with a long, olive accented, chewy tannin coda.  A stately table wine to serve with the finest steaks.
