Need a 2004 Californian Cab

Postby jmone » Fri Jul 18, 2014 11:21 am

First post!

I'm hosting a blind tasking for some friends next weekend. The theme is 2004 Cab / Cab dominated blends from around the world but I'm struggling to find a Californian example I can buy here in Oz. Any suggestions on where I may buy one from (I've tried most of the obvious and done plenty of Goggling to no avail)!

Thanks
Nathan

Thanks - It's odd I could get wines for every other region but not the US :roll:

Nothing easily seen but there could be few around in personal cellars.
I haven't got any but there were orders floating around for Dominus, Harlan and Bond estate for various vintages. None were cheap; latter two were quite prohibitive.

Not 2004 but I had 2002 Dominus last year and it was excellent.

Best luck and hope you have deep pockets

I guess I could go $250ish for a reasonable example :D
