The vines woke up early in 2005 getting an early start. May was very cool and wet, delaying bloom and harvest. This late start could have made for a problematic vintage, but an exceedingly benign and long Indian summer enabled harvest to last almost until Thanksgiving and each block was harvested at its optimum ripeness. The grapes for this Cabernet Sauvignon were picked in mid-October, a full two weeks later than usual.

The Result--Full and rich, deep and direct, curranty and minty with more than a bit of caramelly oak on its ledger sheets. Supple, fleshy, on the soft and inviting side. Focused boysenberry and wild blackberry complimented with abundant spice.

Color: Dark garnet, with medium garnet edges.

Nose: Deep black and red fruit, with some more damp tobacco, some flint and more savory roasted herbs.

Palate: Medium to full, with still integrating toast and medium fine tannins, that coat the mouth. Sweeter red fruit of charred cherry, baked anise and juicier cassis. Finished good and smooth, with slight cherry tobacco.
