2004 STANLEY'S SELECTION
Cabernet Sauvignon

Tasting Notes
The aroma has lots of dark fruit and spice. On the palate, the wine is rich with tons of different fruit layers. It starts with a blackberry, boysenberry flavor that shifts in the mid palate to black cherry and spice. The spice and acidity from the fruit carries through on the finish and leave your mouth watering and anxious for more. e.

Vineyard Source
The Following breakdown of the four vineyards contributing the Stanley’s fruit:

1. Price Vineyard: 1+ acre planting, contiguous to Spottswoode – early ripening. Low yield production with excellent sugar/acid ratio.
2. Walther Vineyard: 2+ acres planting near Caymus Vineyards– alluvial canyon soil. Grace Family clone – close planting for added stress.
3. Corbett Vineyard: 1+ acre also adjacent to the Moffett Vineyard. We planted this vineyard ourselves in 1987.
4. Gemstone Vineyard: Yountville AVA-An amazing vineyard which has 5 clones of Cabernet along with Cabernet Franc, Merlot, and Petite Verdot. Most of this wine is designated for our ultra premium Red Table Wine.
