Spectacular cab with an unusual amount of sweet tar, and tobacco. A little hot, more time in the bottle will allow some more integration. But a complex wine with a great nose of blueberry liquor and long finish of blueberry creme. Best '05 cab I've had.

I doubt that other drinkers of this wine are detecting an "unusual" amount of sweetness. I strongly suspect that they're detecting the mega-purple that has been added to hide the taste of the inferior grapes. This wine stained my tongue almost instantly. Enough with the manipulations already!! BTW, I had this wine in a great restaurant.

The 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain is a beauty, with dark ruby/purple color and a big sweet nose of tobacco leaf intermixed with black currant, black cherry, new saddle leather, and white chocolate. The wine is full-bodied, powerful, with superb purity, texture, and length. Itandrsquo;s approachable now but promises to be better in 3andndash;4 years, and last for at least 15 or more.

Bright, deep ruby. Red plum, red cherry, licorice and graphite aromas are lifted by an almost Burgundian floral character; very pure and scented. Suave on entry, then sweet and rich in the middle, conveying a sense of brooding power. Finishes with substantial broad, building tannins and a late note of licorice. Winemaker Sean Capiaux says he experimented with extended maceration but this technique resulted in wines that were too tannic. As a rule, total cuvaison time is now just 14 days.
