Williamson Wines Cuvée Entice 2005
The Cabernet Franc nose comes up at you from the glass with youthful aromas of fresh coffee grounds and black fruits. The Cabernet Sauvignon component shows lovely fruit immediately evident on entry with wonderful textures, massive yet soft and luscious, but backed up by supple tannins and correct acidity giving this wine perfect balance. The texture is fresh with vigorous style and a silky finish. A delightful, well-bred wine with a paradoxically enticing manner of managing strong peppery spices in foods drawing out the true essence of the primary food flavor.
We opened the 05 Williamson Cuvee' for Valentine's Day. The nose was initially light, but after aerating the oak came out balanced with the tannins. This wine is loaded with blueberries, coffee, tobacco, and some bacon. Well balanced and great acid. I just wish we were drinking this wine with grilled rib eyes. We love big wines by themselves so we are enjoying this great California wine in Texas.
