The 2005 vintage provided a cool and long growing season which allowed Cabernet Sauvignon to maintain its bright acidity while providing ample hang time for flavor and tannin development.

TASTING NOTES

This wine jumps from the glass with an animated nose of flowers, black cherries and ripe plums liberally inflected with aromas of cedar shavings, cigar box, wet river rocks and graphite. It cascades across the palate revealing rich layers of black cherries, cassis and blueberries intermixed with generous hints of black tea and cardamom, leading to a reverberant exit of spiced plums and kola nuts followed by a lengthy mouth coating finish. This wine has gained complexity over time and is ready to drink.
