"This is the first vintage of the 2005 Ombra, the personal project of Capcanes winemaker, Cisco Perello. It is equal parts Garnacha, Carinena, and Cabernet Sauvignon aged in barrel for 9 months. Opaque purple-colored, it offers a perfume of spice box, cedar, tobacco, and black cherry. Firm on the palate, with sweet fruit and a racy style, the wine has excellent balance and should evolve nicely for 2-3 years. It should drink well through 2017."
Wine was a bit on the light side, like a Pinot Noir, but never-the-less, had a very good taste. Good enough for me to oredr a case of it.
This wine was probably great upon its release. And for a few years after that--now? The fruit is gone and the finish is very musty. Had two bottles, one was flawed (corked) the other was overly musty and seemed to be touched by brett. Seems like it's time has passed--best way to describe it? Dirty.
