    Winemaker's Notes:

    The 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon exhibits impressive ripeness and density, the result of a long, moderate growing season and very low yields in the vineyard. At its core is a mouthwatering serving of juicy plum, crème de cassis, vanilla bean and fresh raspberries. Aromatically, this broad array of fruit and warm spice notes define the wine, but there is a mineral, smoky complexity underneath that should continue to emerge over the next several years in the bottle. There are ripe, lush tannins, great oak integration, and enough structure to help the wine age for decades to come.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Combines ripe, intense, complex fruit flavors, with touches of wild berry, black cherry, currant and spice, with a rich, fleshy texture, ending with a long, full-blown and persistent finish, returning to the spice, herb and berry flavors.

    Bright ruby-red. Wonderfully scented nose offers cassis, camphor, minerals, cocoa powder, licorice and rose petal. Juicy, spicy and pure, with terrific definition and cut to the flavors of currant, cherry and minerals. Finishes with firm tannic spine and lingering notes of spice and flowers. Comes across as sweeter but less deep than the 2005 Maya, which is less open to inspection today.

    International Wine Cellar

    The 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon offers a sumptuous bouquet of creme de cassis, earth, spice box, and hints of licorice as well as oak. Medium-bodied, moderately tannic, and pure with a European structural profile, it is accessible, but should age nicely for 15 years.
