Murphy Goode produced their 2004 Cabernet Sauvignon from grapes grown in select vineyards of the Alexander Valley. The blend is comprised of 79.5% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, and 5% Petit Verdot. The wine was aged for 18 months in a combination of French and Americn oak (35% new barrels).
The benchland and hillside vineyards on the eastern edge of the Alexander Valley give them pure flavors of wild blackberries, ripe plums, and fresh herbs that make up the lucious core of this wine. Full and rich on the palante with soft, supple tannins, this is a classic Alexander Valley Cabernet.
The vivid, dark fruit flavors and structure of this wine make it a versatile complement to spring lamb rubbed with garlic and rosemary, a variety of slow-cooked stews, marinated and grilled wild game, good steaks, and aged cheeses.
