Pretty nose of currant, cassis, blackberry and light notes of dark cherry. Powerful and muscular on the palate. Dry, with big acid and tannin but all in balance. Flavors of blueberry, cassis, currant and some oak notes. Some earth. Lingers well and has good grip. Dark flavors. 93 pts. 4/21/12

Really a magnificent wine! Aromas of black currant, cedar, black cherry, grenadine, nutmeg, plum and cocoa. Rich and elegant structure, built to age. Softer fruit up front and power builds. Black currant, blueberry and black cherry flavors. Nice acid backbone and tinges of red currant and blackberry pie. Dry finish. 93 pts. 5/9/13 at winery

85 points. On the nose I detect a pretty intense bramble and berry bush aroma. There is a touch of heat from the alcohol showing through, but this sort of contributes to a rustic quality that is difficult to pinpoint. I get a little bit of espresso beans, some dried cherries, and some cinnamon stick. There is also an edge of charred oak lingering throughout. I like the nose on this wine, but I can already tell that it hasn’t even approached an age that would really show its true colors. It still seems too young, and it’s like all the aromatic complexity that I’m only vaguely detecting is still coiled up deep inside somewhere, waiting for a couple more years before it springs loose. The palate is, not surprisingly, the same way. It opens on dried cherry with a touch of oak. There is some kitchen spice, some dark berry tones, and a touch of plum. I pick up on a faint foresty quality and some nice earthy compnents, but because of this wine’s youth, little more. I think what stands out to me that indicates that this will be a good wine in the future is its mouthfeel. Somehow it manages to capture a dried quality and a creaminess at the same time. The tannins are firm, and a little biting now, but in a few years, I think this wine will be quite elegant. These wines are difficult to rate because it’s kind of like forecasting the weather, but I would say in the future, this wine could easily be a 90 pointer, presently 85 points and Worth Trying.

A bit closed at first but showing tart Cherry, toast, spices and cedar box. The palate was full with dark cherry that’s round, sweet and expansive on the mid-palate but carried by a nice sharp acidity

Brilliant ruby red with touches of cherry red on the rim. Explosion of black currant, cedar wood, saw dust, grenadine and black cherry lingering on dry spices with touches of clay, nutmeg, chocolate and fresh plum.

Juicy wild berry and currant join anise and sage on the entry. Full-bodied, balanced and long on the finish, this is made in a subtle, understated style that's very appealing. Drink now through 2016. 1,100 cases made. -JL Wine Spectator. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 2005 Alpha Omega Cabernet Sauvignon 750ml
