Winemaker's Notes:

TASTING NOTES: "This Cabernet displays captivating aromas and intoxicating flavors that scream expensive!!! Starting with aromas of cassis, licorice, leather and mocha. Dense, creamy-sweet and juicy, with excellent concentration to its luscious flavors of dark plums and cherries, plus cocoa, and a hint of coconut on the succulent finish. This grand creation features ultra luscious fruit flavors deftly melded together with lavish tannins that bode well for long term cellaring (if you can wait). Enjoy tonight, after decanting an hour, or anytime over the next 5 � 7 years, peaking around 2014. Hurry because I plan to stock a few bottles in my personal cellar!" Hal Oates, Porthos.com FUN FACT: Sampling the brand new Chateau Boswell �Beckstoffer To-Kalon� Cabernet 2005 is an out of body experience, reminiscent of the Paul Hobbs �Beckstoffer To Kalon� Cabernet that Robert Parker rated a �Perfect 100� points�. or dare we say a �Perfect 10� sexier than Farah, Kate, or Jaclyn. The �To Kalon� block of the Beckstoffer vineyard is arguably the most famous �insider� vineyard in the heart of Napa (home of the original Mondavi Reserve and across from Opus One) and the source of bottlings that consistently score between 95 and 100 points for winery greats Schafer, Paul Hobbs ($285), Carter ($145) and now Chateau Boswell, a relative �bargain� at a mere $89/bottle. Our friends at Ch. Boswell have special access to select vines in the most desirable sweet spot of this historic vineyard so trust us on this one and order several bottles now as the winery only crafted 200 cases
