Unbelievable, fruit forward incredible dense finish. I wish I could buy another bottle!!
Very good cab. Current in the nose with a hint of mocha. Palate has mocha, chocolate and spice.
The more I love over my notes the more this wine stands out. There was a little bit of earthy funk on the nose and tobacco. This wine definitely expresses location more than other Napa Cabs. Expensive but a good wine.
Almost a musty smell followed by mellower light fruit notes. Tannins are well rounded with a very long finish. Lots and lots of structure. Needs to be layed down for a few years to mellow the finish.
Only available in resturants. Lots ot fruit up front followed by firm tannins and a long finish. Spicier wine with hints of cocoa, currant and cedar.
Silky chocolate dominates, long subtle tannins make you anxious for your next sip. Outstanding Cab, thank you Cinderella Wine for featuring this one, wish I had stocked up.
Nice balanced cab with blueberry and chocolate. Nice nose, nice finish. This is above average cab.

The 2005 Oakville Cabernet is incredibly aromatic, with layers of red cherry, fresh and bakedberries, dark chocolate and spice accented by hints of minerality, vanilla, toffee, wintergreen mint and tobacco.

Supple, chewy tannins support a long, persistent fi nish with dark berries, minerality, toasty oak, andtoffee notes. This wine may be enjoyed now or cellared for ten years or more.
This wine is powerful yet supple, with an intricate nose of baked cherry, dried currants and pomegranate fruit accented with hints of oolong tea, toffee and fragrant oak. The palate has a creamy texture that balances the chewy tannins and emphasizes the concentrated fruit flavors. Notes of dark chocolate, creamy coffee and light tobacco are drawn own over the long finish. The effort of double decanting will be well repaid by the depth of the aerated flavors
Dark creamy red, almost black but ever so slightly translucent. Powerful yet graceful, the nose is extremely expressive and intriguing with fruity and earthy aromas of dried tobacco, spicebox, cherry compote, blueberry and a whiff of vanilla bean. Ri...
