05' Blankiet Paradise Hills. Last year for this label...don't miss it. This is also the last year they made a 100% CAB. A 1 hour + decanting. Dark ruby-red in color. The full-bodied wine has some grace and finesse. Black fruits, black coffee, dark chocolate, tobacco leaf. Concentrated & firm tannins, with nice structured acidity. The wine is relatively youthful for an 05'. Many years in front of it… 10+

Great aromas. Smooth dark fruit with mocha and a nice long finish. Drinking great wines during my birthday week.

It is not the right time to open this unless you decant. Think we made a mistake in trying a pop-and-pour on this 11 year old. We put in a decanter, and that opened it up some,,but not enough to make this a yummy wine. Looking for Plan B. Not sure I can even describe the taste, but it is not well-integrated. If you have it, hold it.

Elegant, tobacco and charred cocoa. Full and beautifully extracted. Fine tannins and serious fruit say this could go decades but why wait. This Cab loved my filet as much as I did...
