Blend: 82% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Merlot 5% Syrah, 4% Petite Syrah, 4% Petit Verdot
The 2005 displays a dark color, inviting your first sip. Black cherry, chocolate and caramel aromas come first with subtle spice and barrel toast as secondary themes. The palate reinforces cherry and currant and carries ample weight on the midpalate. The tannins are present but ripe and round, and they lead to a persistent finish.
The tannins are smooth and soft, making this wine perfect to have with full-flavored meats such as slow roasted pork. Grilling meats such as steaks, chops, and lamb loin complement this Cabernet’s toasty component.
Stored in a climate controlled cellar on its side in the dark at 55 degrees F and 75% humidity since purchase.
