Drinking beautifully right now, this is a rare "Library" release just received direct from the winery. A stunning example of maturing Napa Cabernet!
"These wines certainly merit far more attention. The 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate, which is 90% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Petit Verdot (585 cases), was aged 24 months in 100% new Taransaud barrels. This is a younger, fresher, less complex style of wine, with loads of loamy soil as well as some volcanic/charcoal/ember-like notes that are vaguely reminiscent of a top Graves from Bordeaux. It is opaque purple, opulent, medium to full-bodied, rich and very satisfying. Drink it over the next 15 or so years. Drink 2015-2030" Wine Advocate 93 points
