Caldwell Vineyard-Proprietary Red-Cabernet Sauvignon-Syrah-Napa Valley-California-2004-(.375 ML)-$28.65-A nose of bold dark fruit and spice, dark purple in color.   A smooth, full bodied and elegant blend, with blackberries, currant, plum, with rich vanilla and spice tones, drinking now in a perfect zone but still has a 5 yr+ drinking window, a awesome wine, second time tried in last couple months, amazing.                    RP-92-94              WS-94             CR-96                Good with steak, chicken, pasta.
