2005 ZD Wines Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley

Winemaker's Notes

(From 2011 Vintage) This 2011 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is a great example of ZD’s commitment to producing powerful yet balanced Cabernet Sauvignon, even in a challenging growing season. Briary black cherry, cassis and lavender aromas are complemented with subtle hints of anise, tobacco and a hint of juniper. Sweet, toasty vanilla and spice add depth and complexity. On the palate, lush, silky tannins envelop the core of forward black fruit. Perfectly integrated oak rounds out the long finish.

    Likeable aromas of ripe cherries, creamy oak and creme de cassis are quickly joined by a faint but evident whiff of angularity, and that edginess reappears in the wine from mid-palate to finish. It might be possible for cellar aging to help the wine overcome its difficulties, but the risks are great.
