Product Overview

95 Points - Wine Advocate:
"The 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon may be even better than the 2004. A striking, inky/ruby/purple color offers up notes of black currants, licorice, graphite, forest floor, and spice box. Flawlessly constructed with sweet tannin, good acidity, and superb purity, this is a tour de force in winemaking. Possessing both elegance and authoritative flavors, it should drink effortlessly for two decades."

Winemaker's Notes:
"2005 was a much warmer and longer growing season than 2004, which allowed Winter to take advantage of extra hang–time in the vineyards and achieve a big, tannic structure in the grapes. The resultant wine is a powerhouse of muscular tannins and extreme ripe flavors. Oak aging in French barriques was extended in 2005 to complement the fruit explosion with fine Oak spice. The 2005 vintage is a classic expression of the varietal that can be enjoyed now or cellared indefinitely."
