Dark, dark almost black and a bit murky looking in the glass. Very big, rich nose--oaky and somewhat raisiny. Very nice on the tip of the tongue. It seems to slide in without any taste sensation for a second or so. There is only a minimum of currant fruit flavor. Also, hint of a green pepper flavor. Fairly serious tannin with accompanying bitterness might put off some. US$44.99 at Wine Club in Santa Ana in 2008.

Ruby red in color. Perfumed and heady on the nose. Pure and clean on the palate, this has an upfront red fruited profile of red cherries and raspberries as well as some currants and kirsch. A beautiful lush texture with a slightly elevated but in control acid level. A big and chewy tannin level makes this a candidate for cellaring for at least 2 to 4 years. Slightly hot on the finish this is surely a youngster with promise. From a half bottle, and I will get some more.

The 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa exhibits a dense ruby/purple color as well as sweet, tarry, black currant, chocolate, cedar, and wood smoke-like flavors, and decent acidity. Drink it over the next 10ndash;15 years.

Steven Tanzer: Inky violet. Powerful tobacco-accented blackberry and cassis aromas, with a gentle mocha note and a hint of iron. The supple dark berry flavors are supported by low-key minerality and gentle tannins. Gains sweetness on the finish, which shows a distinct blueberry note. This is the first vintage for this bottling, which is made from all hillside vines, according to Ramey.

Ripe and fleshy, with plump black cherry, red plum, rose petal and cedary oak flavors that are elegant and refined, finishing with earthy tannins. Best from 2010 through 2015.

Opaque ruby. Red- and blackcurrant aromas, with suave floral, tobacco and spice character adding interest. Fleshy, liqueur-like dark berry flavors are soft and round, with no rough edges or obvious tannins. Turns slightly firmer on the long, velvety finish. Ramey told me that this has a pH of 4.0.

Winemaker's Notes:

Smooth, rich and fleshy, this is a notably complex and concentrated youngster, with a tasty core of ripe currant, black cherry, cedar, olive and sage notes that are well-focused, ending with a complex aftertaste. This is a delicious Cabernet blend that is delicious now (after decanting) or anytime through 2012.
