I've been aging a vertical of the Cinq for quite some time and this example proves to be worthy. Drinking well with miles to go, Sonoma county fruit delivers elegance uniquely its own. These wines don't scream at you, they whisper.

WS #2 WOTY back in the day. This is so prime right now. Cedar, tobacco, and mint. Tannins are mellowed, oak is integrated, just awesome.

Wonderfully fresh and youthful at this stage. Still has a slight bit of green tannins that come through and it is throwing a bit of sediment. However all the flavors of a very well made Sonoma Cab are there.

First of some 1999 we'll have this week to celebrate Alexis and her birthday this week! Has lost a little fruit over the years, but still outstanding with hints of berries and herbs.

Cracking old(ish) Cab blend out of Sonoma. Was a WineSpectator top 100 and 96 points on release. I think they got it pretty right. Beautiful soft, developed cab characters with a long fresh palate.
