Wine Advocate ReviewRated 90The 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon Cold Creek Vineyard is 100% Cabernet and was aged in 81% new oak. The brooding aromas deliver elements of pain grille, pencil lead, assorted black fruits, and plum. Firm and elegant, with ample spicy flavors, it will develop for 3-4 years and drink well from 2012 to 2020. Wine Tasting NotesCabernet from this 30-year-old vineyard always delivers power, structure and rich concentrated black fruit. I have tried to harness this power into something a little friendlier in the first few years of release, while not taking away from its inherent ability to age...literally wanting my cake and eating it too! Concentrated aromas of pomegranates, blueberries, cocoa and molasses lead to a rich mid-palate with loads of dark chocolate on the finish. This is a classic Cold Creek Vineyard and classic Washington Cabernet. Try prime rib or even lamb with this Cab. There is no limit to the foods that will match this great wine.
Cabernet from this 30-year-old vineyard always delivers power structure and rich concentrated black fruit. offers dense aromas of boysenberry and brown sugar spice with layers of fruit with nicely integrated yet very age-worthy tannins.
