Robert Parker(2005 Vintage) This is a presale offer! Full payment is required on all presales. Wine is due in Spring/Summer of 2008."A superb Mouton, the 2005 is composed of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Merlot, and a dollop of Cabernet Franc.

Mouton is a pure, perfectly articulates Cabernet as a Shaker chair is a pure, essential and perfect chair.
