The purple-colored 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon contains 13% Merlot, 6% Cabernet Franc, 4% Malbec, and 2% Petit Verdot. It was aged for 33 months in 65% new French oak. It displays an alluring bouquet of Asian spices, incense, wood smoke, mineral, black currant, and blackberry leading to an elegant, velvety-textured, concentrated wine. There is enough structure and balance to permit another 5-7 years of positive evolution and it should be in its prime from 2015 to 2030.
