Winemaker's Notes

Blend: 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Cabernet Franc, 3% Merlot, 2% Petit Verdot

Deep purple-black in color, the 2005 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon displays aromas of black currant, cassis and spice. This powerful, full bodied wine is packed with the rich flavors of ripe dark fruit.

Tannins are silky and smooth, resulting in a seamless yet intense wine of structure and balance. Enjoy this Cabernet Sauvignon now, or age it for an additional 5-10 years.

I've been selling this wine at my work for almost 3 years. It doesn't get ordered a lot but then again I never pushed it because I had never tried it until last week. My first taste was good, but nothing special, HOWEVER, once the wine got a chance to "open up" it was excellent. I got all the classic Napa Valley cabernet flavors including dark plum and blackberry. I was intrigued the most by the subtle black olive flavors which added complexity to the finish. A great value at $25-30.

I can attest to the fact that these Cabernets will age well. I recently had the pleasure of opening a number of 1978, 1979, 1980, 1982, and 1983 vintages. They were all wonderful, especially the 1979 (perhaps the best Cabernet I have ever tasted) which had a full nose of tobacco and was heavenly with capuccino flavored chocolates. I look forward to tasting this 2005 vintage in another 20 - 30 years should I be fortunate enough to live that long.

Learn About Napa Valley

It's hard not to think of Napa Valley when thinking of California wines. The region is, after all, the one that brought world recognition to California wine making. The area was settled by a few choice wine families in the 1960's who bet that the wines of the area would grow and flourish. They were right. The Napa wine industry really took off in the 1980's, when vineyard...

Learn About Cabernet Sauvignon

(cab-uhr-NAY sow-veeh-yawn) King of Red Many refer to Cabernet Sauvignon as the king of red grapes. Perhaps that title is due to its ability to grow worldwide in a number of climates, or to the fact that it produces wine with such character yet such diversity. Either way, this grape is responsible, as a whole or a partner, for some of the greatest wines in the world. In Bordeaux,...
