The wine is fragant, with great intensity, a full-bodied mouthfeel, and almost a Mouton-Rothschild-like creme de cassis element.
2005 Cabernet Sauvignon
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.
2005 Estate Cuvée
A tiny cuvee of only 240 cases, with the Merlot coming from a vein of heavy clay on their vineyard.
2005 Roberta’s Reserve
"This deep plum/purple-colored, fully mature 2003 offers complex notes of chocolate (100% new Taransaud barrels were used), espresso, plums and black currants. The tannins are soft and the wine is medium-bodied with a nice mid-palate (often a deficiency in vintages that have such...
