    Winemaker's Notes:

    87% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Malbec, 4% Merlot, 4% Petite Verdot

    The rich varietal flavor of the Cabernet Sauvignon grape grown in Argentina and aged in new oak results in a harmonious, velvety wine of great balance and prominent personality. This vintage, maybe more so than previous vintages of Enzo, exhibits brighter, more intense fruit aromas and flavors due to the use of newer clones of the varieties first planted at Bianchi 12 years ago. Aromas of violets, plums and berries on the nose lead to more mature fruit, spice and cassis on the palate. As with most Enzo vintages, there is a long, smooth, very pleasing finish.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The flagship 2005 Enzo Bianchi is a blend of 87% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Malbec, 4% Merlot, and 4% Petit Verdot aged for 14 month in 100% new oak, mostly French. Saturated purple in color, it presents aromas of wood smoke, clove, espresso, black currant, and blackberry. Full-bodied and dense, the wine has outstanding depth and concentration, plenty of intense, ripe fruit, and a lengthy finish. Give it a few additional years in bottle to blossom and drink it from 2012 to 2025. The Valentin Bianchi wines are all produced from estate-grown fruit.
