This dark beauty starts with rich aromas of cassis, violets, black cherries and cedar, then dives into a full-bodied palate of intense black fruit with a roasted chocolate in the finish.
94 points, Wine Advocate, Robert M. Parker, Jr. (December 2009): “...a sensational 2005 Estate Cabernet Sauvignon...perfume of spice box, cedar, black currants, and subtle background oak...full-bodied...a savory, expansive mouthfeel...”
90 points, Wine Enthusiast (March 1, 2009): “A beautiful wine...balance and elegance. The black currant and cedar flavors are enormously satisfying...”
Vinfolio, Doug Wilder, The Wilder Side of California (October 18, 2009): “…The elegance... shows tireless dedication to making the best wine the site can provide.”
Give this one a chance to breathe and pair with tri-tip steak, pork tenderloin or a hearty beef and vegetable stew.
Drink now or hold up to 2025.
This wine was recently featured in The California Wine Club's wine of the month club.
