Reviews/Information
"96 out of 100 - Philippe Melka oversees Seavey's vinification and elevage, and the 2004 is another spectacular wine from this Conn Valley hillside vineyard. This 100% Cabernet Sauvignon was aged 19 months in French oak, of which 50% was new. Melka has always said the key to understanding the Seavey vineyard is to tame what can be relatively robust and aggressive tannins. This spectacular 2004 is performing better now than I remember it in its youth. A dense ruby/purple color is followed by lots of charred earth and a Graves-like hot rock character, cassis, earth, spice and truffle notes. This full-bodied classic is beginning to drink well, which is unusual for a young Seavey. I'm still enjoying my 1990 and 1991 Seaveys! This full-bodied, powerful, rich as well as civilized and, dare I say, elegant beauty will drink well for 15-20 years. This is one of the great, unheralded, under-the-radar terroirs in all of Napa Valley." - Robert M. Parker, Jr., Wine Advocate
