Vintage 2005

Moderate temperatures, lots of sun, and virtually no rain in October made for an exceptionally long growing season in 2005, which delivered fruit with rich flavors, dark color, and soft, mature tannins. The wine shows a dark bluish purple hue and great density. At present, the wine is youthful, expressive and multi-layered. The spectrum of aromas that emerge is incredibly broad, including blueberry, blackberry, cassis, orange peel, black licorice, and dried rose petal. The strong character of both varieties is tightly woven, and delivered to the palate with great power and precision. The rich blue-black fruit character gives way to nutmeg, graphite, and crushed stones, revealing layers of complexity that will surely develop even further with time in the bottle.
