Shirley explained to me that the 2005 Cabernet was delicious right away, but then retreated into itself for a few years before opening back up in 2010. It’s her favorite choice for drinking now, and I’d be hard pressed to argue with her! This is luxurious, classy, Napa Cabernet with wonderful purity of fruit, mineral complexity, perfectly calibrated oak influence, and silky smooth tannins. Just lovely and very fine value at this quality level.
“The bottled 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon (90% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Petit Verdot) is even better than the barrel samples tasted last year. Surprisingly soft, but complex, it offers notes of damp earth, black currants, incense, cedar, and spice. Ripe and medium to full-bodied with excellent fruit purity, and charming texture as well as length, it can be consumed now, although its equilibrium and balance suggest it will last for two decades. Drink 2008-2028.”Wine Advocate 94 points
