I was lucky enough to get to taste this wine on the beautiful Montelena Property, they told me it was a dry year for the '04 vintage which is why it has such pungent leather scents softened by a note of blackberry sauce. The tannins are strong but well integrated with the oak. The Estate Cabs from Montelena have the potential to age 35yrs +, so you can keep it or you can drink it now just be sure to decant about 1 hour before you want to serve it. Try serving it with a Pot Roast with all kinds of root vegetables.
