    2005 Cinq Cépages Cabernet Sauvignon
  • Appellation: Sonoma County
  • Blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec, Petit Verdot
  • Winemaker: Margo Van Staaveren
  • This classic Bordeaux blend shows amazing power and finesse at such a youthful stage. It’s a magnificent Cabernet with loads of black fruit and hints of dried herbs, olive and sage aromas. On the palate, inviting flavors of currant, ripe black plums, blackberry and roasted oak awaken your senses. Supple and ripe tannins surround a firm structure and lead to a deeply extracted and lengthy finish. Sure to be a classic.
