Artesa Napa-Sonoma Cabernet 2005
Wine Tasting Notes Balanced from start to finish, this wine has bright flavors of blackberry, raspberry and cassis accented with chocolate, cinnamon, vanilla, clove and smoke. The seamless oak integration enables this wine to glide like satin through the mouth. A touch of crisp acid keeps the fruit fresh now and for years to come. This wine will drink superbly for up to 10 years. Our Napa Valley Cabernet brings an extracted fullness to the wine and our Alexander Valley Cabernet adds intense fruit. Enjoy this synergy of Napa and Sonoma's finest Cabernet.
A pleasant breadth of scents launches with herbs and spices, including sage and rosemary, along with hints of raspberry. Palate is centered around herb-driven red fruits, primarily raspberry. Caramel and vanilla take prominent roles at 2 hours. A nice acidity keeps the finish tangy and enriches the red fruit medley. This is a light, but very enjoyable cabernet.
