Our 2005 Cabernet displays deep, almost opaque red/purple hues. On the nose are dusty plum and rich black raspberry aromas with hints of anise, roasted coffee bean and cocoa. The tannins are upfront and coating, but soft and integrated. The velvety tannins give way to soft and lush plum and brambleberry flavors, showing touches of vanilla and sandalwood.

Production Notes
The 2005 vintage was slow going at first, but toward the end of the season temperatures rose to ripen the grapes to their full potential. The extended hang time allowed for great flavor development and mature tannins. The grapes for this wine were picked from cherished mountain vineyards in North/Central Napa. After a 4 day cold soak, the must was inoculated and fermented in small, open top fermenters until dry. Thereafter, they were pressed, settled and allowed to finish Malo-lactic fermentation in 30 percent first year American oak, and a blend of second and third year old French and American barrels, for nearly 19 months. This wine was bottled unfined/unfiltered.
Winemaker Notes
This vintage has proven spectacular for aging and is presently showing beautifully with aeration. Drink now or cellar this wine for another five to 10 years.
Food Pairing Notes
This cab works very well with a hearty beef stew, pepper-crusted Ahi tuna or pasta with vodka sauce.
