International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 138

($54; includes 6% merlot and 3% petit verdot) Good deep ruby-red. Claret-like aromas of blackberry, currant bud, bitter chocolate, licorice and graphite, plus a whiff of garrigue Juicy and laid-back, with firm, nicely integrated acids contributing to an impression of youthful austerity. Strong dark berry and graphite character in the mouth. Gains breadth on the back end, with the tannins substantial but nicely integrated. This very lively wine should be held for a couple of years.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 180

The 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon possesses aromas of creme de cassis, bay leaf, and spice box as well as soft tannins, medium body, and luscious fruit. It is a delicious, French-styled effort to drink over the next decade.

Wine Spectator Author: James Laube

Smooth-textured, supple and harmonious, with subtle layers of currant, spice, herb, anise and light cedary oak, ending with a graceful mix of ripe fruit and fine-grained tannins.

This was terrific - what an excellent California Cab. This is probably getting to its peak - such great integration of oak with blackberries, herbs, dried cherry flavors. Full bodied, delicious, great complexity and a lengthy finish. For a non-vineyard specific Napa Cab this drank like wines 3-4x the value.
