    Winemaker's Notes:

    The wine is a seamless fusion of two varieties, Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon. An intriguing nose of chocolate, crushed herbs, cedar, blackberries and smoke leads into a tightly focused palate with fine-grained tannin and incredible density. The finish is fresh and lively, with flavors that linger.

    The 2005 is very similar to the 2004 although as with Amon-Ra, the 2005 Godolphin is a little larger and will take a little longer to fully integrate. The Cabernet component in the 2005 showed higher blackcurrant and cassis notes than the 2004 making the wine appear slightly more aromatic. Potential cellaring of 12-14 years.

    "The 2005 Godolphin, a blend of 80% Shiraz (from 85-year-old vines) and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon (from 60-year-old vines), was aged in 100% new oak, primarily 300-liter French hogsheads. It represents a beautiful marriage of power and elegance, displaying an inky/blue/purple color as well as notions of black raspberries, blueberries, graphite, and sweet pain grille. Ripe, pure, and medium to full-bodied with sweet but noticeable tannin, it can be drunk now or cellared for 12-15 years." Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate
