2005 Estate Cuvée

"The 2005 Proprietary Red Estate, which is a blend of 56% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot and 4% Cabernet Franc, spent 20 months in 100% new oak. There are 800 cases. The wine comes across as very Pauillac-like, with notes of cedar wood, creme de cassis, licorice and graphite. It is still opaque purple, full-bodied, pure, richly textured and impressive. It's accessible and drinking well already, but promises to evolve for at least another 15 or more years." 95 points Robert Parker, Wine Advocate, June, 2015
