Carmen 2004 Gold Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 750ml
The 2004 Cabernet Sauvignon Gold Reserva is purple colored with an expressive perfume of pain grille, mineral, spice box, and black currants that jumps from the glass. On the palate the wine is firm with enough structure to evolve for 4-6 years. Layered but still youthful, this large-scaled, balanced effort will benefit from additional cellaring. It will be at its best from 2013 to 2025.
