Kunde Estate Cabernet Sauvignon Sonoma Valley Reserve 2005

Member Review by jtryka:

The color was pure Cabernet loveliness, a deep inky purple at the center and bright ruby along the edges. The nose is pure joy, lovely notes of leather and cassis, with a pure meatiness to it, accented by hints of anise and wonderful dark chocolate notes over the top. The taste was just beautiful, with some dark fruit notes at the outset, ripe plum and black cherry, that gracefully transition to some black licorice, green tea and rich dark chocolate notes midpalate. The mouthfeel is just all around lush, rich and velvety. The finish is just perfect, well structured tannins supporting a long, exceptionally dry finish that seems to last for a minute or more. The kind of wine that you don't give a second thought to sipping all evening long!
