Buccella Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2005

External Review by Morrell & Company:

The 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon comes across as a restrained, linear effort, although it reveals terrific opulence for a vintage that is somewhat European in its aromatic, flavor, and textural profiles. A deep ruby purple color is followed by rich, sweet, blueberry, blackberry, espresso roast, and toasty oak-like aromas, and surprising elegance and lightness for such a powerful wine. This 2005 should drink well for 10-15 years.
