International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Dec 08

Full ruby-red. Complex aromas of currant, mocha, tobacco leaf, smoke and spicy oak. Suave on entry, then distinctly firm-edged in the middle, but with good intensity to the flavors of dark cherry, currant, licorice and herbs. In a rather Old World style, with a restrained sweetness and a light leafy quality. Finishes with firm, building tannins that will require time in bottle to soften.

Elegant and supple-textured, with earthy currant, mineral, sage and dusty berry flavors that end with a touch of herb and cedary oak. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 10,000 cases made.

More Bordeaux style then 2007. Really nice nose, more going on then just fruit. Wonderful softness on palate.

Just had the grand tour of the property...with a nice tasting at the end. the 2005 is like rubbing yourself in silk. One word...Finesse. Reminiscent of the Right Bank in Bordeaux...Better potential than my '04 and '03s. Bravo.
