Crocker Star Stone Place Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley St Helena 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

Notes on the Crocker Star Stone Place Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley St Helena 2005 : NVWE NOTES: This gorgeous Cab is super rich, ripe and forthcoming in aroma, offering lavish blueberry jam and Creme de Cassis scents tied to savory layers of vanilla, toast and baking spices, and hints of bouillon and dried herbs. It is wonderfully plush on the palate, but has fine zest and firming tannins which bring the buoyant blueberry, Cassis, blackberry, vanilla and spice-cake flavors back into classic dinner balance. The finish is very long and carries an intriguing hint of sweet anise, along with some rich forest-earth notes. Further airing adds a seductive sweet mulberry note along with a hint of black pepper. Despite is terrific early appeal, this is a serious cellar candidate, and the patient will reap great rewards in another five years. Unfined & Unfiltered. 722 cases produced.CROCKER STAR STONE PLACE CABERNET SAUVIGNON NAPA VALLEY ST HELENA 2005
