*** Chez Ray Napa Cabernet Sauvignon, 2004

This is made from frozen Napa grapes obtained from Brehm Vineyards, fermented in BDX yeast, and pressed at dryness.

Original Review, August, 2010, five years from vintage date: In the glass, deep burgundy, opaque in the middle.  Aromas are bold, tangy, high-pitched, alcohol-tinged, black fruit.

On the palate, intense, perfumed, tannin-packed extract of ripe plum skins. Three stars. WAY too young to fully judge.  Let's watch it in five years or so.
