This wine jumps from the glass with an animated nose of flowers, black cherries and ripe plums liberally inflected with aromas of cedar shavings, cigar box, wet river rocks and graphite. It cascades across the palate revealing rich layers of black cherries, Crème de cassis and blueberries intermixed with generous hints of black tea and cardamom, leading to a reverberant exit of spiced plums and kola nuts followed by a lengthy mouth coating finish. While drinking well now, it will benefit from and open up more fully with some additional time in bottle and should continue to develop more weight and complexity over the next 10+ years.

Wine AdvocateFrom the beautiful benchland vineyard in Rutherford, the vines for this wine were first planted in 1964 and 1965. under the consulting work of one of the most iconic and historic names in Napa Valley - André Tchelistcheff. More recently, the vineyard is managed by the super-viticulturalist David Abreu, and the wines have been made under the consulting brilliance of world-famous Michel Rolland ever since he first started consulting in 1999. The 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon is fresh and beautifully pure, with notes of blackcurrants and spice, a luscious, open and opulent texture, sweet tannin, and copious quantities of floral-infused blackcurrant fruit gently touched by new oak. Look for its lofty, heady alcohol (14.8%). It is elegant, pure and fresh. Drink it over the next 10-15 years.

Wine SpectatorBlack in color, glyceriney. Massive, deep, tremendous. Some will find it overpowering in New World extraction, but it's a real beauty in that style. Explodes in black currants, chocolate and new oak, almost overripe, with suggestions of raisins. Almost dessert-like, but stays dry and elegant. Defines modern Napa Valley cult Cabernet Sauvignon.
