My last ‘05 but I have an ‘07 in the Cellar. Blend of Cab Sauvignon, Cab Franc, Merlot & Petit Verdot, very dark Ruby with aromas of complex berries and sweet earthy spices. On the palate ripe blackberry and black cherry flavors with ample minerality and soft smooth tannins. The finish showed great length, was well balanced with moderate acidity and finished with some cacao and cinnamon tones. Only 2198 cases made if you are lucky to find a bottle.

Pouring a glass of this Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot & Petit Verdot blend, I noticed a dark Ruby red color with aromas of intense berries and sweet earthy spices. The palate showed ripe blackberries and black cherries with generous minerality and soft refined tannins. The finish showed great length, was well balanced with moderate acidity and finished with some cacao and cinnamon tones. Only 2198 cases were made so drink up as I think it will not get any better with time.
