Carter Cellars Revilo Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2004

Tasting Notes

The inaugral Carter Cellars vinage is a darkly saturated purple with aromas of dusty black cherry, sea salt and smooth black fruit essences. The palate exudes ripe dark fruit and black currant with a touch of earthiness on the fullbodied finish.

"Big, ripe and chunky, with tight tannins wrapped around a core of intense berry, currant and spicyanise flavors. The tannins take hold, ending with a firm grip. Best from 2008 through 2013."

The History of the Revilo Vineyard

Revilo Vineyard is located off of Silverado Trail by the Meadowood Resort and a stone’s throw away from some of St. Helena’s famous vineyards.  Its clayey soil was farmed and named after Reg Oliver, (Revilo backwards), the owner of El Molino Winery who passed away in 2004. While you might know of El Molino for their stellar Pinot Noirs and Chardonnays, Reg did an incredible job farming his Cabernet vineyard, and his daughter Lily continues the tradition. Their efforts helped pave the way for Carter Cellar's great success with the Revilo label.
