2004 Marquis Philips S2 Cabernet Sauvignon
"The more expensive offerings include the 2004 S2 Cabernet Sauvignon. The first bottle tasted was closed, but a second bottle was more open and interesting. There is more to it than the less expensive cuvees, but also more tannin and wood, which can make for a less charming and less open-knit wine. It appears everything will come together with another 6-12 months of bottle age, but at present, this is a solidly made, outstanding example of Cabernet Sauvignon in need of bottle age. It should last for 7-8 years."
