Roanoke Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon North Fork 2004

Member Review by LennThompson:

A standout from a region where cabernet is rarely successful. This wine is richly, deeply scented with black cherry, vanilla, sweet plum and slightly smoky aromas. The flavors are dark, with blackberries, black cherries and black pepper accented by smoky-sweet cedar, fresh herbs -- particularly thyme -- and faint licorice nuances. Medium-to-full bodied, this is a somewhat hefty wine, but still one of refinement because of the well-integrated tannins. 148 cases were made.
