  • Wine Spectator | Rating: 92

    Firm, focused and distinctive for the hot brick overtones to its cherry and tobacco flavors, packed nicely into a package tightly wrapped with a layer of prickly tannins. The fruit wins in the end, as the finish lingers elegantly. Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Petit Verdot.

    The 2005 Collaboration I is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, and Petit Verdot aged for 32 months in 70% new French oak. It offers up an impressive bouquet of wood smoke, mineral, clove, sage, black currant, and blackberry. On the palate it is smooth-textured, elegant, very concentrated, layered, and savory. Red Mountain is known for its tannin, but here it is well under control, and the wine's impeccable balance suggests a lengthy evolution for this bold effort.
