    2004 Caitlin’s
  • Appellation: Sonoita
  • Blend of Petit Verdot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Callaghan Vineyards (Elgin, AZ) -- (Winery Info & All Wines)
  • Winemaker: Kent Callaghan
  • 46% Petit Verdot, 31% Cabernet Sauvignon, 23% Cabernet Franc. Refined nose of green herb, black pepper, cinnamon, cola, sausage and an earth component that is unique to Petit Verdot. Tighter than Padres in the mouth, more linear, but this has a core of singular flavor intensity. Built for the cellar, like Padres. An interesting pair to re-consider in a decade.

    2004 Padres
  • Appellation: Sonoita
  • Blend of Tempranillo, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Callaghan Vineyards (Elgin, AZ) -- (Winery Info & All Wines)
  • Winemaker: Kent Callaghan
  • 70% Tempranillo, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot. Relatively forward nose of smoke/earth/sautéed mushroom, charred meat, black tea, cinnamon and a floral fruit character combining orange and cherry. Plush, but not at all fat in the mouth. A middle-weight, despite 15.2% alcohol, that will gain richness and additional complexity with 3-4 years of additional cellaring
