Le Petite Vice Cabernet Sauvignon 2004 Napa Valley



Elaine and I had the pleasure of running into Allan Nassau, owner of RED ROCK WINES at 55 Degrees Wine Bar in Mandalay Bay. He was pouring some wines from Tin Barn Vineyards by winemaker Mike Lancaster. Allan was also pouring Le Petite Vice Cabernet Sauvignon 2004 Napa Valley. This well balanced wine is worth a taste. The Vintner is Patrice Brenton and the consulting winemaker is Paul Hobbs. In the glass it showed medium to full body. On the nose it exhibits classic cedar and tobacco. On the palette the cedar and tobacco merge into black current on the finish. We really enjoyed this wine. Only 525 cases were produced and Allan informed me the winery is sold out. It is here in town so look for it. Robert Parker rated it 90 points.
