This wine has a very developed nose after it has had a chance to breathe. The wine is perfectly clear, deep in color, and has a little brown in the color. The taste has chocolate notes and traces that are a little nutty. The initial taste is a little sharp, but after letting it breathe, it opens up and mellows out. The initial taste is a little spicy, but is gone almost as soon as it is noticed. The aftertaste is smooth and light. This medium-bodied is a great wine and will only get better as it ages, either on the shelve or in your glass.

This dark purple wine has explosive aromas of jammy fruit including plum, cherry and currant followed by some hints of tobacco and smokey oak. On the palate, this full-bodied cabernet opens with wonderful black fruit flavors of blackberries and black cherries with some black tea and pepper in the middle and some licorice on the back. The oak was subtle and the tannins were rather soft for such a big and young Cabernet.

A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 2005 Silverado Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon 750ml

Forward aromas of cocoa, cassis and bay leaf. Full and rich black cherry and plum fruit meet spice and sweet oak on the palate. Superb balance continues through a persistent finish.

The 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon is a gorgeous example of elegance allied to power. The final blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Merlot, Petit Verdot, and Cabernet Franc offers up notes of crushed rock, spring flowers, red and black currants, and plum as well as hints of white chocolate and subtle barrique smells. Medium to full-bodied, with a nicely layered mouthfeel that builds incrementally, the wine has superb purity as well as accessability. It can be drunk now or cellared for 15 or more years.

This is a wine of pedigree. It shows in the exquisite acids and tannins and overall balance of its parts, including oak. The flavors are classic blackcurrants and cassis, with a nice edge of dried herbs. Not a blockbuster, it's probably best now.

This gentle, rich red has slightly volatile aromatics of peppermint over candied red fruit, a parallel to plum sauce for Hoisin beef.

Ruby-red. Oaky aromas of black cherry and baking spices. Sweet, pliant flavors of redcurrant and baking spices, with a chocolate mint character emerging as the wine opened in the glass. Finishes with slightly rough, broad tannins and lingering spice character.

The elegant 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa (87% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Merlot, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc) reveals notions of lead pencil shavings intermixed with black cherries, black currants, toast, and damp earth. It is a mid-weight, flavorful red with good acidity as well as a moderately long finish. It should keep for 7ndash;10 years.
