Wine Advocate ReviewThe 2005 Jubilo is composed of 75% Cabenet Sauvignon and 25% Malbec and was aged for 12 months in 30% new French oak prior to being bottled unfined and unfiltered. Purple/black in color, it offers a nose of wood smoke, vanilla, pencil lead, saddle leather, black currants and black cherry. Surprisingly light on its feet, the flavors already offer complexity as well as an elegant personality. It nicely conceals enough tannin to evolve for 5 - 7 years and should drink well through 2025.Wine Tasting NotesDeep blackcurrant and oak aromas with opaque red/purple color. Flavors of black cherry liqueur, red currants, dark chocolate and a touch of roasted coffee. Lush without seeming heavy. Seems to unfold in layers, keeping the palate excited well past the lengthy finish. Plenty of tannin for aging without any harsh astringency. Pairs well with most fine food presentations like duck in a fruit sauce, leg of lamb persillade, Osso Buco, and even a simple filet mignon. Also complements medium-strong cheeses (French, Italian, goat) or dishes prepared with mushroom or cream sauces.
