2005 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
Lot 56 Napa Valley Cabernet
Immediately accessible, classic Napa Cab, ebullient with cassis and pretty French oak on the nose. This is a meticulously hand-crafted medium/full-bodied wine (13.9%), featuring gobs of blackberry, raspberry, and cassis fruit underpinned with toasty oak and subtle cocoa notes. All are leading to a long, elegant finish with great balance and firm—but not bitter—tannins. This is archetypal Napa Cabernet: lush, smooth, inviting, and an exceptional value at $12 a bottle.
Style: Full, Bold
