The 2005 Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon is beautifully balanced with power and
elegance. Fragrant cassis, black currant, cherries, and spice tones dominate the complex aroma. Palate tastes of ripe cherries and vanilla from the French oak that is never cloying or heavy. The finish is bright, with silky tannins and very refined. The spice and perfume from the Cabernet Sauvignon and the mid-body weight from a great vintage are apparent and make this wine a beautifully confluent experience.
It will age nicely for 10 to 12 years and will be quite enjoyable as it moves into adolescence in four to six years.
