    Winemaker's Notes:

    The 2005 vintage was one of the finest that I have ever experienced. We achieved extraordinary ripening with physiological maturity achieved through leaf stripping, green harvesting and generally improved cultural practices throughout the vineyards. This Cabernet Sauvignon was fermented in very small stainless steel tanks and was punched down or pumped over twice a day. Aging in predominantly new French Chateaux barrels has produced a complex and generous red wine.

    This wine has a generous nose of spicy oak and cedar integrated with ripe black fruits and cherry. A sweet, rich mouth feel begins with cassis and ripe black berry leading towards chocolate and mocha. The finish is complex, generous and long. While this wine can be enjoyed now it will definitely benefit from additional cellaring and with proper storage should develop for eight years or more.

    This 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon was produced from grapes grown primarily at Champoux, Sagemoor, Klipsun and Tapteil Vineyards. These four vineyards are some of the most highly regarded properties in Washington State and produce fantastic wines in their own right. In blend, they produce extraordinary wine.

    Mike Hines (9/28/2010)
    Not quite as wonderful as it's 2003 namesake, but it is one of the better Washington reds. Another year in the cellar (not more) and it could get close to rivaling it's older sibling. Let breathe for a couple of hours if opening now. Color 1-3:3; Nose 1-4:3; Taste 1-8:6; Overall 1-5:4 Total 0-20: 16
