2005 Cabernet Sauvignon, Sonoma County
$30.00

The tradition of this style of Cabernet Sauvignon comes from Bordeaux and has found a fitting home in Sonoma County. As residents of Sonoma Valley for 28 years, and winemakers for 38 years, Robert and PJ have seen the revolution of California wine making and have long been advocates of high quality, blended Sonoma County Cabernet. This wine is a testament to the land and a bold declaration of what makes Cabernet the king of red varietals. Blended by taste from all five Bordeaux varietals, it is full bodied, deeply flavored, amply complex, has exceptional depth and mouth feel, followed by a long aromatic finish. This 2005 Cabernet hits every corner of the palate, nothing left out, nothing out of place. The oak accentuates the varietals and ties them together without dominating. You don’t have to lay it down and guess when to pull the cork. Extended barrel aging for three years in artisanal oak barrels means that this Cabernet is ready to drink now. Let it rest for a few weeks to recover from bottle shock and then open it for dinner, you’ll be delighted.
