Whoa. Delicate tannins. Beautiful oak. Nice acidity to balance the dark fruit. Unreal.

Had this before and this is last bottle from 05 - love this winery - both oakvllle and reserve cabs - decanted 90 mins - like I love of this and something I wish was better for the 05 - the 07, 08, 10 are much better - well balanced firm with long palette and tasty

Anniversary dinner at the Chop House. Quite lovely. Paired nicely with my filet and asparagus. They were out of the '07, but the table was happy with the '05.

Surprisingly youthful for a wine that was never stored properly; had to drink it quickly, it fades quickly when decanted
