International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 138

($150) Good deep ruby. Pungent aromas of liqueur-like cassis and blackberry, violet, bitter chocolate and camphor; a real essence of cabernet sauvignon. Juicy, pure and penetrating, with a mouthwatering quality to the crushed berry, violet and bitter chocolate flavors thanks to lively acidity and firm underlying minerality. This extremely young wine really coats the mouth with flavor. Began quite closed but showed increasing density and sweetness as it opened in the glass. The finish features superb palate-saturating tannins and an uncanny vibrating quality. A wonderfully aromatic wine that should improve in bottle for many years.

The 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon goes from strength to strength. Beautiful notes of crushed rocks, white flowers, and blue, red, and black fruits form a complex, compelling set of aromatics. The wine reveals superb richness, a full-bodied mouthfeel, excellent integration of acidity, wood, and tannin, and a terrific finish. This beautiful 2005 is already displaying some secondary nuances, and it should drink splendidly well for 2-3 decades.

Wine Spectator Author: James Laube Issue: Web

Combines power with finesse and purity of flavor. Ripe, with fleshy, juicy wild berry, plum and black cherry fruit that's supple and polished, rich and concentrated, with a long, deep, focused and persistent finish that keeps repeating the fruit themes.

Shows a vibrant robe of garnet/ruby in the glass. The nose is pomegranate, cedar, dark chocolate, black raspberry and salty black currant. The palate is lush and enveloping on entry and absolutely loaded with velvet-like structure that coats the mouth. There is a complex purity to this wine; concentrated and sophisticated, absolutely seamless and captivating. Showing flavors of integrated blackberry, chocolate, currant, camphor, graphite and espresso. It keeps coming like a steam engine through a tunnel - getting bigger as time passes. This wine demands decanting for at least 2 hours prior to enjoyment.

Very nice cab with impressive body and deep tanins. Should age wonderfully.
