Chateau Potelle
Cabernet Sauvignon

2004 Cabernet Sauvignon VGS
Mt. Veeder

2004 VGS Cabernet is rounder than 2003. It fills your mouth with friendly, complex rich flavors which begin with red berries and evolve towards chocolate, liquorices and spices.

I left the wine to aerate in my glass and tasted it periodically. Each time it opened up new dimensions. I like this wine. It is really good now but definitely worth cellaring as well.

Often I get the question about what is the difference of our mountain Cabernet compared to valley floor grown grapes.

On our rocky mountain vineyards, the vines work very hard. The vines yield small berries and much less grapes per acre. Combined with our natural farming and winemaking they produce intense, refined yet forceful wine.

I would say that our mountain Cabernet has a more focused and dense structure, more depth than a typical valley floor wine. It takes longer for this kind of wine to open up. It is well worth the extra months' wait.

Enjoy this wine now or years from now.
