2005 Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley
Full medium red. Wild, musky aromas of dark raspberry, mocha, caramel, tobacco, herbs and game are lifted by a floral topnote. Round, tactile and fat, with sexy dark fruit flavors complicated by leather, olive, roasted herbs and spices. Finishes distinctly firm, with big, ripe, tongue- and tooth-dusting tannins and very good spicy length.
