I just tasted through all the 2004s. They are elegant, balanced, and have great fruit. Nice acidity, too. What I also thought was very interesting is the large percentage of Cabernet Franc in the blends.
Ciel du Cheval: 39%
Bel Canto: 50%
They all have a nice, subtle Cab Franc character. A certain “savoriness.” All drank great on the second day and you could tuck them away for years. And they are very reasonably priced considering the glut of inflated prices out there.
Hooray for Cadence!
