($75) Full, bright ruby-red. Expressive aromas of dark berries, mocha, truffle, licorice, smoke and tobacco. Sweet, lush and creamy but not at all sloppy, with a truffley note complicating the berry and tobacco flavors. Broad, ripe tannins won't get in the way of drinking this rather forward wine now, but it's balanced to age.

The three red wines include the impressive 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon (539 cases of 100% Cabernet Sauvignon). Offering classic creme de cassis, licorice, scorched earth, and new oak characteristics, this nicely structured, medium to full-bodied red is built for 15-20 years of evolution.

Super big wine. Berry forward and needs to either sit longer or air before serving.
