Distefano Red Blend Columbia Valley Ottimo 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

Blend of 91% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Merlot, 2.5% Cabernet Franc,1.5% Petit Verdot<br/>175 cases produced<br/>There is a reason the Ottimo is the epitome of all the wines we make. "Ultimate" in Italian, this wine represents our selfish indulgences. It is made from barrels we consider the "best of the best" in our cellar, and it is always dressed to impress.<br/>Concentrated in Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2005 Ottimo offers luscious black berries, anise, tobacco and cedar. A decedent indulgence of vanilla, cassis, and coca powder aromatically dance out of the glass. To round out this richness, you can detect layers of earth, nutmeg, and tea leaf. Very smooth and expressive on the palate with ripe raspberries and a touch of smoky oak on the finish. Balanced acidity and fine tannins will allow for great aging potential. <br/>
