Cabernet Sauvignon
Scherrer Vineyard, 2004

$ 160.00$ 340.00

This is a unique and exotic expression of Alexander Valley benchland Cabernet Sauvignon. It was aged in small French oak cooperage for about thirty months, with infrequent racking. Bottled without fining or filtration to respect the expression of the site, this 100% varietal wine enjoys both a youthful suppleness and the structure necessary for lengthy storage.

Winemaker's Notes

Keeping with our mode of holding onto our wines longer than one would expect, here is our 2004 Scherrer Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon. As with the previously offered Sonoma County and Alexander Valley Cabs, the very warm vintage lead to very generous wine. Still very typical cassis and hint of red fruit, this also has a mouth-watering cherry lifesaver note on the finish, which really gives it a nice lift. Not sweet or cloying, it is ‘just right.’ It should age quite well due to its appropriate concentration, structure and balance, just like our other vintages.

    One of the forgotten varietals from Alexander Valley is Cabernet Sauvignon, and Scherrer does an excellent job with it. The 2004 Cabernet Sauvignon Scherrer Vineyard Estate reveals attractive, dusty, black currant, and licorice notes with a hint of spicy oak in the background. Medium to full-bodied with sweet tannin, excellent concentration, and a nicely textured mouthfeel, it can be enjoyed now and over the next decade or more. Fred Scherrer continues to turn out reasonably priced, consistently well-made reds and whites. 89 points. Robert Parker
