outstanding cab for that price
Wonderful wine right now. However, the mouth doesn't match the nose. It takes a while for this wine to open up. Lay it down, put a note to self on Google Calendar to send you an email in about 2-3 years to open up another bottle. I am confident that it will be worth the wait.
Wine Advocate Review Rated 89 The 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa (a blend from various sites) is a soft, sexy combination of 83% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Merlot, 9% Petit Verdot, and 2% Cabernet Franc. A big, sweet nose of Asian spices, smoky oak, and plenty of black and red fruits, are followed by a lush, round, generously constituted wine with medium to full body, decent acidity, and velvety tannins. Enjoy it over the next 8-10 years. Wine Tasting Notes Dark ruby in color, the aromas of dark fruit like black cherry, currant, plum and blackberry exude with hints of rose petals and dried cranberries. The pleasant integration of oak and fruit describe a bouquet of aromatic cedar, clove, cinnamon and dark chocolate. Great mouth feel and balance; black cherry, blackberry and currant flavors dominate. Cedar, spice, chocolate and espresso, plus layers of dark fruit flavors, blend into a long clean finish.
