Gundlach Bundschu Cabernet Sauvignon Sonoma Valley Rhinefarm Vineyard 2005
Editorial Reviews for Gundlach Bundschu Cabernet Sauvignon Sonoma Valley Rhinefarm Vineyard
A bit tight still with woody note covering sweet cocoa tinged fruit, mocha cherry with some crushed herbs flittering in the background, soft yet juicy with dark spice tones and dark slightly jammy fruit notes, black cherry and plummy, medium full, nice mouthfeel, good, classic fruit profile touch minty on the finish, a touch tight but with good length 90pts
Earth, oak, roast meat, iron rust, spice, red fruit, vanilla, classic typical Cali cab aromatics from a very good vintage, jammy wild cherry fruit - full entry, nicely focused a touch soft but with plenty of crisp tannins to support the earthy, herbal fruit that has just a hint of sweetness on the edge, nice cherry pit tone on the back end turning fruitier on the finish with a nice pairing of vanilla- and spice- with red fruit, decent length 90pts
Tons of oak, leather on the nose, very earthly with not much fruit, became more balanced with time/air......nice/interesting cab that has unusual characteristics
Four and a half glasses

Wine Tasting NotesThe deep garnet color and intense aromas of the 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon foreshadow the concentrated black currant, cassis and Christmas spice flavors to follow. Bright acidity and firm tannins frame the lush texture, leading to a long ripe finish dense with cocoa and molasses flavors. Delicious upon release; optimal cellaring time 2 to 15 years.
