    Winemaker's Notes:

    "A beautiful Howell Mountain Cab that shows its terroir in the firm, rich tannic structure. And what gorgeous tannins they are, so refined and expressive. The fruit is perfectly ripe, suggesting currants, blackberries, red and black cherries, licorice and a hint of milk chocolate. Rewarding now, and should hold and improve for at least a decade."

    Vogt Vineyard is situated atop Howell Mountain, along the northeast edge of the Napa Valley. The 15-acre vineyard reaches from a high elevation with shallow, rocky soils, down to a lower bowl of deeper loam. The surprisingly warm climate, combined with the vineyard's steep, southeast exposure, produces a dense and structured wine, typical of hillside Cabernet Sauvignon.

    The 2005 Vogt Cabernet Sauvignon is an incredible wine. The aromas of jammy fruit and floral notes are dark and intense. The palate offers sweet, rich flavors of blackberry and cassis mixed with floral and spice. Incredibly concentrated, this wine is powerful, yet soft, with firm, polished tannins.

    Critical Acclaim:

    I usually decant but this was an afterthought, and even though I opened and poured it immediately it was still soft (though it could be dryer) and flavorful, with a beautiful bouquet. The finish was adequate. I had it for desert with a chocolate mousse cake and Bluebell Homeade Vanilla ice cream. The Nickel & Nickel wines are rare to find in Far West Texas so I am always pleased to be able to get one, I am never disappointed. Wish I could get a Far Niente Cab or Chard here, but this is close enough.
