(2000 Vintage) "Delicious purity of fruit, with ripe, rich, concentrated blackberry and boysenberry jam flavors, mixed with anise, cedar and black cherry. Shows little in the way of oak, finishing with a tight beam of rich flavors and ripe, intense, polished tannins. Best from 2004 through 2012. 1,767 cases made."(JL)
Wine & Spirits(2003 Vintage) A brilliant effort, the 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon Solo (100% Cabernet Sauvignon) exhibits a dark ruby/purple hue in addition to a classic bouquet of graphite, licorice, black currants, dark cherries, underbrush, and fruitcake. Broad, full-bodied, and deep with moderate tannin, and terrific sweetness and length, it is an elegant, but substantial, authoritatively flavored Cabernet Sauvignon that will benefit from 2-4 years of cellaring, and should last for two decades or more.
