TN: 2004 MacPhail Cabernet Sauvignon Justice Family Vineyard

  • 2004 MacPhail Cabernet Sauvignon Justice Family Vineyard - USA, California, Sonoma County, Dry Creek Valley (4/16/2009)
    Dinner at Fleming’s. 13.9% alcohol. The nose was slightly reminiscent of Syrah with notes of plum, baked bread, loamy earth, and red clay. On the palate, balanced notes of red currants, Red Vines, plum, and cocoa powder. With food (steak) the wine exhibited more chocolately notes but not in a way that overpowered the meal. A terrific and well-made Cabernet for this Pinot producer. (91 pts.)
