Murphy-Good Cabernet 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

Making a Cabernet Sauvignon from Ellis Ranch is practically a tradition for us, as this is the fourth single vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon we've produced from this vineyard. Planted in 1983, this vineyard allows us to create a Cabernet Sauvignon reminiscent of the early California Cabs. With flavors of pepperwood, dark cherry and blackberry, this Cabernet is well-structured. It was aged for 22 months in French oak barrels.

Excellent Cab for the price range. Always a hit at a dinner party or social gathering.

This wine was introduced by a friend and it is a wonderful 'table' wine that is easy to drink and not too rich. That's about as detailed as I can get because I'm new at this!

Wine Tasting NotesHillside and bench-land vineyards on the eastern slope of the Alexander Valley create a classic Cabernet Sauvignon with soft texture and rich flavors. Small lots of Merlot and Petit Verdot are blended from time to time for added complexity. Layers of sweet black fruit and spice are the distinguishing feature of our Cabernet.
