The 2005 CASK Cabernet has layers of ripe, red cherries, plum, vanilla, cocoa, and toast. The wine is remarkable now, especially if served with intensely flavored meats or cheeses, but it also can be aged for 10 years or more. This is a monumental vintage for CASK.
Black-garnet hue with a ruby rim. Upfront aromas of black cherry, coffee bean and graphite. Opulent cherry-chocolate flavors laced with minerals and youthful wood tannins. Stylish, lasting finish showcases purity of fruit (98% cabernet/2% petit verdot), balance and structure.
Lots of new, smoky oak stands out on this polished Cab. Give it a little time in a decanter before you drink, as it pulls together, becoming more powerful and accenting the blackberry and cherry flavors. Should develop for a decade.
