Winemaker's Notes

A blend of 54% Merlot, 33% Cabernet Franc, 7% Petit Verdot and 6%Malbec.

A nose of complex dark fruit with hints of cedar, crushed stone, an dry herbs leads into black fruit, licorice, and grenadine syrup on the palate. The perfectly integrated oak leaves no edge and the huge tannins are packed and concentrated but melt on the mouth. This wine has great aging potential and can be enjoyed now.

Critical Acclaim

"Firm in texture and generous with its black cherry and tar flavors, picking up pretty raspberry and vanilla notes as the finish lingers impressively. A bit lighter than usual. Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Drink now through 2013. 3,000 cases made."
91 Points

"The 2005 Uriah is composed of 59% Merlot, 36% Cabernet Franc, and 5% Petit Verdot aged in approximately 50% new French oak. Purple-colored, it has an attractive bouquet of pain grille, pencil lead, spice box, and an amalgam of red and black fruits. This is followed by a supple-textured wine with good grip, layers of savory, spicy flavors, and a firm structure. It will evolve for 2-3 years with this Saint-Emilion look-alike being at its best from 2012 to 2020. "
