Why? Don�t miss this rare chance to own a few bottles of Cabernet sourced from the vineyard directly adjacent to� Screaming Eagle ($1,250/bottle) renowned vineyard in the heart of Napa.� Tastes?� The 2005 is soft and approachable reminiscent of an elegant Bordeaux blend but built to last with bold tannins, dry blackberry, dark cherry, and hint of vanilla on the long, smooth finish. This well built wine will age well for 7 � 10 years!

Wine Tasting NotesRound and polished, opens with a mouthful of cherry and cranberry fruit mixed with notes of herb and dried tea. Toasted oak fills the middle palate with notes of spice and smoke, while the soft tannins finish with harmony and grace.

Wine Tasting NotesThe Tench Vineyard Cabernet combines sweet blueberry and boysenberry flavors that are in harmony with a background of spice and herb. This wine is quite elegant and well balanced between the juicy fruit and the sweet vanilla from the oak. Its coating, velvety texture is expansive and refreshing as the soft, supple tannins carry the flavors into a long, sweet finish.
