Levendi Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley Sweetwater Ranch 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

Wild cherry and vanilla on the nose. This limited production Levendi Cabernet Sauvignon entices with the sweet, toast nose reminiscent of cherry pie a la mode richly balanced with blueberry and vanilla flavors that crescendo into a memorable finish.

This wine is 6 years old now and still huge, but well balanced with respect to tannin/acidity/glycerin/fruit. I tasted it over 5 days left on the counter at 70 degrees, corked. No decrease in intensity, and marked improvement in taste/smell/feel. This wine will age for a long time, though with food, at present, it is wonderful. A great bargain at 26 dollars--were I younger, I would wish for more than the 4 I have remaining.

Tasting from 375 ml bottle. Nice classic color. Interesting nose with winter spices, dark berries, and some green pepper. The pepper moves on to the palate along with plum and cassis. Oak toast is present in the finish, but not too prevalent. That goes to some very nice wild mint and dried cranberries and really long juicy acid that lingers even after the fruit has disapated.

If you like Napa Cab, Levendi would be hard to beat in its price range. lucas2100

Deep, dark purple in appearance. Lovely vanilla sandalwood notes with plum and wild cherry on the nose. Rich and mouth-filling with friendly flavors of plum and black fig fruit. Topped only by a luxurious finish of dark chocolate.



<p> <p>The Sweetwater Ranch vineyard produces grapes with intense flavors and individuality that sets it apart from other Napa Cabernets. These grapes possess intense flavors and overall balance, which makes Sweetwater Ranch a beautifully bold Cabernet Sauvignon.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> </p>
