Forman Cabernet Grande Roche 2005

Member Review by solomania9:

Rich vibrant rustic nose of cedar, black cherries, and oak. The zest of a fruit bomb with the complexity and delicate aged character of an epic Bordeaux. Perfect structure and balance with a long meandering finish of wet wool, a little funk and tea. I'd swear there was cab franc or something else to add to the complexity, but if this is 100% cali cab then I'll be damned. Paired with a rare Chateaubriand. Amazing wine.

Château la Grande Roche:
Ric Forman, a legend on the Napa wine scene with his integral role in developing the vineyards of Newton and the great Cabernets of Sterling, established his own brand with a debut 1983 vintage. This first wine exceeded anyone's expectations, and Ric has maintained consistent high rankings for his age-worthy Cabernet and Chardonnay, wines of "finesse" and "elegance". Forman also produces a second label called Chateau la Grande Roche.
