The 2005 Napa grape growing season will not soon be forgotten. Harvest was late for our Coombsville vineyard, but not disapointing. Vines increased stored energy and helped create a recipe for higher yields and after using 100% new French oak from Taransaud, Gamba and St. Martin, the wine was ready to be bottled after 24 months.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
This 2005 is what aficionados look for in Napa Valley Cabernet – ripe blackberries, sweet cherries, dark plums and chocolate. Nonetheless, it isn’t one-dimensional or over the top as many Napa Cabernets can be. This beauty manages to retain its elegance and finesse while delivering big powerful fruit flavors. I had a hard time putting my glass down. This wine manages to so deftly balance extraction and grace. My guess is will age at least a decade or more, but there’s no harm in popping the cork now. —Peter Marks, MW
