This is primarily a grower wine wrapped together with a few small, high-end components. 2005 was a huge harvest with many a grower left without contracts and forced to make the wines themselves. This particular wine was made in a high-end custom crush facility in Napa. Being a competitive "bulk" market, the wines are made to the nines because they will not sell otherwise. There's plenty of juice around right now so everybody's real picky, including me!
