2005 Cabernet Sauvignon, Spring Mountain District
Napa Valley

This deeply purple wine is extremely aromatic, with large amounts of black raspberry, crushed violet spice, and cocoa nibs as well as underlying vanilla cedar spice. The palette is rich with ripe cassis and tobacco spice, as well as a dusty black earth character. The tannins are firm and chalky with crisp mountain acidity to balance. More raspberry and fennel linger on the long finish. The wine is very young still and could be consumed so with hearty food, or left to develop beautifully over the next 9-12 years.
