The warm 2005 growing
season, along with a light
crop and small concentrated
berries at B.R.
Cohn Olive Hill Vineyard,
yielded us one of our best Cabernets to date. This wine has
much of the ripeness of 2004 with very pronounced
aromas and flavors of plum, black currant, and cherry. As
always, this exceptional vintage was fermented in small
lots to ensure the character of each part of the Olive Hill
Vineyard. This vintage was aged for 24 months in only the
finest tight grain French oak. A bouquet of fine oak, anise
and mint combine with supple tannin and long finish
produce a well-balanced Cabernet that will age gracefully
for years to come and drink well at your table now.
