I like this wine. Although the 05 is really young (obviously), it's still good. The nose is huge, with a complex profile of chocolate (i smell it, but is not in the winemaker's notes) and cassis. On the mid-palate, it tastes of cream and cherry. My friend described is as strawberry jam, which i agreed and do agree with. The finish is silky smooth (for a cab this young). I bought this wine on sale for $45 at vons. Worth the price but would probably not buy it again.

delicious. The taste was broken down into three stages for me...1. initial strong alcohol/tannic flavor. 2. made way to what tasted of a smooth strawberry jam flavor. 3. very smooth finish, tastes of caramel and cassis. Thoroughly enjoyed the wine, would recommend to anyone.
