This was one of those paradigm shifting wines for me, a wine that solidified my favoritism for New World Bordeaux Blends. Each sip was different than the one previous and all the grapes worked in harmony together. Black plum and black cherry liqueur aromas gave way to cedar and smoke with roasted herbs. The palette was rich and seamless with black fruit, tobacco, dark chocolate and those lovely dusty Rutherford tannins. The finish seemed to last forever. Wines like these also make me think the '05 vintage in Napa was underestimated.

Was hoping for more but still very nice. Red fruit, smoke and hints of leather in the nose. Flavors include spice, sage, a bit of herbaciousness that I like. Good acid and nice long finish.

This cab needs a steak! Ripe cassis, blackberry, cedar, oak and toast with some sweet tobacco notes. On the palate, ripe berry, plum and toast with a hint of coffee. - Tasted at winery 4/20/10

On the nose, pure, ripe currant, black cherry and a hint of cinnamon. Plum and blackberry on the palate. Earthy and deep, more like a cab! - tasted at winery 4/20/10

Luxurious, rich and concentrated with aromas of cherry, currant and blueberry. These are just the start of this 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon. The harmonious flavors of black cherry, anise and plush cassis

smooth, rich and seductive. This 2005 Merlot from our Rutherford vineyard shows intense aromas of pure ripe currant, black cherry, blueberry and a hint of cinnamon. On the palate one finds perfect flavors of plum and blackberry. The finish is long and lingering with well integrated tannins. Drink now through 2015.

This Cabernet Sauvignon combines richness and concentration with an incredible sense of elegance and finesse. The layers of cherry, violets, and raspberry with just the right amount of tobacco create a wonderful aroma. Copiously flavored with cassis, currant, cherry and nuances of vanilla this wine becomes more complex with every sip. The finish firms up nicely with ripe round tannins that give it a sweet fruit edge. Drink now through 2015.

Winemaker's Notes:

Aromas of plum and black cherry permeate this inky, garnet hued Bordeaux blend. Flavors of smooth vanilla and hints of tobacco are present on the long, full finish. This wine is seamless from the beginning to the last sip; it will age beautifully and develop its flavors in the bottle.
