Bugay Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Sonoma County the Empress 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

This wine displays the delicious flavor of ripe herbs and minerality reminiscent of a classic Margaux style wine. The enticing aromas of fully developed black fruits are framed by mature leather and tobacco notes. Very complex in the mouth with a wonderful combination of lush, rich textures and layers of cassis, black cherry, black currant and mocha flavors. Fantastic balance with a long, complex finish where the nuances of mineral and earth flavors linger along with cinnamon and nutmeg. 21 months in Reserve French Oak Barrels.Suggested food pairings:New York Steak cooked over an open oak grill, Fillet Mignon with shallots and cognac, and Beef Bourguignon. Bittersweet Chocolate Souffle.TASTING NOTES2005 Cabernet Sauvignon, "The Empress"

The 2005 vintage displays the delicious flavor of ripe herbs and minerality reminiscent of a classic Marguax style wine. It is very complex in the mouth a wonderful combination of lush, rich textures and layers of cassis, black cherry, black currant and mocha flavors.

Bought this from WineAccess and LOVED it. Would put it up against Larkmead, Far Niente & Opus One-type Napa cabs. If you can find it, grab some.
