About

92

“The brilliant 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon boasts a deep ruby/purple color as well as an elegant perfume of spring flowers, black currants, licorice, cedar, and subtle toasty oak. It is medium to full-bodied with sweet tannin, and a long, authoritative, elegant finish. It should drink beautifully for 15 or more years.”

Product Description:

"The 2005 growing season in the Napa Valley was spectacular. With adequate rainfall from the winter months, budbreak took place in late March and early April. A warm summer with temperatures hovering in the high 80's followed. The vines developed a large crop and significant crop thinning was required just after verasion to maintain fruit concentration and intensity of flavors. In September, the weather cooled slightly, thus extending the growing season into October, with the additional time for the fruit to hang allowing flavors to develop to their fullest. Picking began in 2005 with the Cabernet Sauvignon on October 5th and finished on October 17th. Cabernet Franc was harvested on October 15th and Petit Verdot on October 25th. The extended hang time insured that the fruit was as ripe as possible with mature tannins." -Winery
