About

92

"Powerful yet restrained, this wine beautifully expresses the delicate and nuanced aspects of Cabernet Sauvignon with the herbal side of the grape in full force. Everything is tied together in a neat and tidy bundle, with sweet blackberry fruit surrounded by leaf and earth, leading into ripe but stiff tannins and just the right elements of mocha toast. Will it age? Undoubtedly; but hard not to drink it right now."

"The 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon Stillwater Creek Vineyard is deep crimson-colored with aromas of cedar, spice box, earth notes, and red and black currants. Made in a lean, elegant style, this racy Cabernet will evolve for 2-3 years and be at its best from 2012 to 2020." -90 Points - Jay Miller - The Wine Advocate

"Bright medium ruby-red. Musky redcurrant and tobacco on the nose, complemented by new oak. Juicy, spicy and light on its feet; not a particularly fleshy cabernet but more sharply delineated and nuanced than the basic bottling. Finishes with very suave tannins and noteworthy persistence." -90 Points - Stephen Tanzer - International Wine Cellar
