A rich, red berry nose with a whiff of forward oak. There is a leafiness mixed with tobacco that nicely augments the crushed blackberry scent. Upon entry, the tannins are smooth - not at all dominant or distracting. More berry cordial with a smooth, creamy texture - something which indicates a wine hitting somewhat above its station. Nice, long finish in the Napa-Sonoma tradition. A very good wine at a very good price.

Not a bad wine, and you could certainly do a whole lot worse at this price. Smokey and leathery on the nose. Bit of prune and berry to the taste. A bit more watery than expected. Quite drinkable, but nothing unexpected or in any way out of the ordinary here.

This was one of the first wineries we went to when my girlfriend and I were out in Sonoma. We fell in love with the wine and the people there. The 2005 cabernet is a great wine, perfect for just sipping or pairing with steak or chicken.

This is a pretty good Cab with some pleasant features. It's dark, very dry and rich in tannins, with blackberry and earthy-tobacco and a touch of oak. A good example of a decent countrywide blend.

Aromas of mocha, currant, dill and herb are rich and concentrated on the palate, revealing a dense, complex core of flavor that keeps building on a long, integrated finish. Very impressive. Drink now through 2009.

Starts with dill pickle notes, but has ripe undertones of red currant and plum wrapped within spicy oak, finishing with supple tannins. Drink now through 2005. Tasted twice, with consistent notes.

A blend of the big three Cabernet valleys, Alexander, Sonoma, and Dry Creek. Polished and elegant, with good berry flavors balanced with green olive, dill, unsweetened chocolate and earth. Feels plush in the mouth, smooth and soft, but complex. Good enough for your best fare.

Currant, plum and black currant tones have firm structure, with roasted herbs and cedary notes on the finish. Drink now through 2006.

A big, sturdy, dry Cabernet, rich in chewy tannins, and filled with blackberries, cherries, currants and oak.


External Review

Sourced from a variety of Sonoma County ranches, the 2005 Cabernet combines generous power, luscious mouthfeel, dark color and berry-like flavors in an ideal table wine - big, aromatic and firm-flavored, yet approachable.
