JOCELYN LONEN CABERNET SAUVIGNON RESERVE 2004


The Grade: AMAZING. The Mojo: The Jocelyn Lonen Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve 2004 is a remarkable find at any price. The fact that we are selling this at ½ price is ludicrous. This rich, concentrated, full-bodied Cab is the product of two of Napa’s finest vineyard sites – Stagecoach and Krupp.


It takes awhile for this one to open up – it’s still quite young. After an hour or so of decanting, the wine is still very shy and introverted. However, after a few hours, the tannin structure is firm and silty, with a strong backbone of acidity and the presence of dense black and blue fruits, cocoa, espresso, cigar box, coffee, Darjeeling tea, cinnamon, and dried herbs. Layers and layers of complexity run throughout this wine, and the finish is long.


500 cases of this elegant, complex red were made, and this is the last vintage before the fruit will find its way into the regular Napa Valley bottling. It will be a great wine for cellaring or for your next big meal of beef tenderloin or roasted lamb.
