04 Cliff Lede Cabernet Sauvignon ($60)  ☺☺☺☺

Cliff Lede produces some great quality Cabernets and this is a great example. Although from a relatively poor year the wine showed great complexity. On the initial nose it was full of everything black. Black cherries, blackcurrants and blackberries. There was a lovely earthy mineral taste with hints of cedar and leather all joining the mix to create this complex wine. Opened about 2 hours before drinking it will be great for the next 2-3 years.
