International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 144

($85) Good bright ruby. Ripe black fruits, mocha and chocolatey oak on the nose; showed a slightly medicinal note of chocolate/cherry liqueur with aeration. Very ripe and creamy in the middle in the character of so many 2005s, with a strong chocolate note and a slightly exotic, roasted quality. This full, dense cabernet finishes with broad, fine-grained tannins and sound acids but turned a bit chunky with air. (A second bottle, which I rated two points lower, showed a light raisiny note and some dryness on the finish.)

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 180

While outstanding, the two 2005 Cabernet Sauvignons are not as impressive as Etude's 2004 efforts. The 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa's deep ruby/purple hue is followed by notes of black currants, lead pencil, tobacco leaf, and spice box. Well-made, with medium body as well as good fruit, texture, and depth, it should drink nicely for 12-15+ years.

Wine Spectator Author: James Laube

Very tightly wound, with a bundled mix of spicy dried currant, sage, mineral and deep, rich berry flavors that slowly unfold, offering more depth, richness and persistence on the finish.

Vinfolio Author: Vinfolio Team Issue: 208

Blended with 2% Cabernet Franc, it shows a dense core of concentrated blueberry, currant, and blackberry on the nose. Supple, sleek black fruits, sandalwood and finely framed tannins are found on the palate
