Trefethen Napa Cabernet Sauvignon 2005
Belle Terre Vineyard, owned by the Dick Family, is located on the Russian River in southern Alexander Valley. Over the past three decades, the Dick Family has built a reputation as one of the premier grape growing families in the region.The 2005 vintage is designated "Select Late Harvest" which is equivalent to Auslese/Beerenauslese (minimum sugar at harvest 28.0 brix/Residual sugar usually over 11.5% by weight). Botrytis-affected wines are made from white grapes affected by "Noble Rot" known as Botrytis cinerea. The grapes are hand-selected and then individually hand-sorted to choose only Botrytis-affected berries and partial clusters, specially processed and fermented in stainless steel. (Available in 375ml bottles only.)Intense aromas of ripe apricot, peach and Bosc pear fill the nose of this luscious dessert wine. A richly-textured sweet entry leads to apricot nectar, yellow peach and honey flavors. The wine is perfectly balanced with acidity and has a clean finish.
Nutty and buttery taste. Less spicy than the nose might suggest. Lingering creamy finish.
grassy scent tangy and with a yeast flavor black peppercorn finish
Wow - got to be the most citrussy chardonnay i've ever tasted - pineapple and lemon drops! Some oak and loads of acids...
Brighter bing cherry and plum notes, with nice acidity and good structure. Will improve over next 12-18 mos.
pleasant ripe berry nose with smooth, balanced tannins, fullness on the palate and enough structure to age for a while more. Exquisite with a rare steak.
Three and a half glasses

Dark and inviting, with crushed plum, currant paste and warm fig sauce flavors backed by alluring cocoa and espresso notes. This has a very silky texture, with a long, suave finish. Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot. Drink now through 2011. 1,500 cases imported. -JM ** Only 4 in Stock **

The medium-bodied 2005 Ornellaia shows plenty of delineation in its dark cherries, blueberries, spices, minerals and crushed rocks. The 2005 doesn't have the detail of the 2004 or the richness of the 2006, but it does offer notable finesse and clarity in an understated style for this wine. My impression is that this will be a relatively early-maturing vintage of Ornellaia, which is not a bad thing, considering the age-worthiness of the two vintages which surround it. In 2005 Ornellaia is 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 22% Merlot, 14% Cabernet Franc and 4% Petit Verdot. It is a big success in this vintage. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2020. RP

Dark purple in color with slight red towards the rim. The nose opens with cassis, plum, raspberry and vanilla, framed by toasted oak, black pepper and coffee beans. Medium to full bodied on the palate, the flavors reveal notes of red fruit, roasted... Jeff Loo. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 2005 St Jean, Chateau Cinq Cepages 375ml
