Aromas of fresh herbs, currant and blackberry follow through to a full body, with chewy tannins and a long, chewy finish. A classic Bordeaux blend. Shows potential. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot.

The 2005 Lupicaia reveals notable purity in its dark fruit, herbs, minerals and spices. The wine remains light on its feet and supremely elegant. Ideally the 2005 Lupicaia should be cellared for a few years to allow for its full range of aromas and flavors to develop. Still, it is a graceful, elegant effort in every way. Lupicaia is Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot that spent 16-18 months in French oak. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2025. ** SOLD OUT **


Winemaker's Notes:

This wine's dense, highly extracted cassis and black cherry flavors and aromas are punctuated by distinct notes of cedar, smoke and forest, set in a ripe, firmly focused tannic structure ending in an elegant, sustained finish.
