Product description
96 Points - Vinous

The 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon is a gorgeous wine, but it also needs a good hour or more of air for some of the initial signs of funkiness to blow off. As that happens, the 2005 reveals a core of intense, concentrated dark fruit to match its brooding personality. Leather, smoke, liquorice and tobacco all add to an impression of inward power, and yet in the glass, the 2005 opens up beautifully to show notable density and layers of texture that still need time to fully emerge. Although I have had better bottles, this is certainly a very fine example. If you are lucky enough to own the 2005 can look forward to several decades of exceptional drinking from this powerhouse, old school Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon.

94  Points - Decanter

An earth-forward and rustic expression of its Mount Veeder origin, sourced from dry-farmed mountain vineyards between 550m to 730m above sea level. Aromas of brick dust, crushed violets and black plums. The palate is soft yet complete, with a texture that walks a perfect line between fullness of flavour, elegance of texture and precision.
