Aged: 9 Years
2005 was an incredible year for Napa Valley with a large crop and elegant wines. This wine has a silky mouthfeel. Violet, sagebrush, baking spice, pomegranate and black currant fill the nose. The palate is voluptuous yet finessed, showing sweet currant and soft, sweet tannins.
92 points, Cellar Tracker: “This is the real deal. An excellent dark fruited CA cab, well integrated fine tannins.”
Food pairing: Prime rib is the perfect pairing, also lamb chops and roast duck are also outstanding.
This wine was recently featured in The California Wine Club's wine of the month club.
