    Winemaker's Notes:

    Long, fine-grained tannins are balanced within an elegant varietal expression. The chalky but not dry extract complements the remarkably feminine composure of this vineyard. The Brookman site is dogeared with sustained softness and plushness which makes for a beautifully understated and vivid expression of Cabernet Sauvignon.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon Brookman Vineyard offers aromas of pain grille, spice box, black currants, and blackberry liqueur. Made in a forward style, it has layers of spicy fruit, soft tannins, and impeccable balance. It can be enjoyed near term but will provide pleasure through 2020.

    The Wine Advocate

    This firmly tannic wine starts off with aromas of leather and blackberry more than cassis, then follows up with flavors of sweet-tasting ripe fruit and caramelized oak, hints of bacon and brown sugar. Give it until about 2010 for the tannins to soften, then drink through 2020.

    Inky purple. Peppery cassis, boysenberry and plum on the nose, plus a strong peppery accent. Bitter cherry and sweet dark berry liqueur flavors are deep and velvety, but with some tart finishing acidity. Youthfully taut in the middle palate but opens up on the sweet, tangy, spicy finish.
