This bottle started out too acidic and hot for me, but at Day 3, it opened up nicely for me. I still believe it would be better in a few years or with longer decanting. It had massive raspberries and plums. A bit of sweetness, which I don't mind. For the price, its got great QPR - but for the same price point, I was more drawn to the 2006 Chakana Cab Sauv from Argentina.

The 2006 doesn't rock my shorts off quite as much as the 2005, but it's still a great value at this price point. Dark, dark fruit and isn't too hot on the palette despite it's high alcohol content.

NOSE: a little shiraz, ripe cherries, maybe more. PALATE: low acidity, slight sugar - less than Cousino Macul but more than Barrel Monkeys. Salty/savory, in the direction of rare steak. Smooth finish, low tannins. Good, unflawed finish. Fruit filled mid-palate. OVERALL: This was a good wine, not that interesting to me on the nose, not offensive. I missed the tannins. Didn't do anything exciting with any of the thanksgiving fare.

This red opened my palate to experience more reds (not being usually a red indulger)!
