The 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon Ashmead is sourced from 70-year-old vines yielding a microscopic 0.5 tons per acre. The wine was aged for 18 months in 100% new French hogsheads (300 liter barrels). Purple in color, this sensational Cabernet has a splendid nose of pain grille, graphite, leather, black currant, and blackberry liqueur. Full-bodied and voluptuous with hidden tannins, this beautifully balanced wine will develop with 8-10 years in the cellar and drink well through 2035. (JM)
Inky ruby. Room-filling bouquet evokes cassis, boysenberry, kirsch, Asian spices and mocha. Deeply flavored and supple, with sweet dark berry and cherry flavors, pliant tannins and impressive mineral lift. Gentle anise and tobacco qualities linger on the strikingly long finish. Gorgeous now but built to age. (JR)
Supple and complex, with rich red cherry, black currant, licorice and mint aromas and flavors, lingering on the focused finish with a layer of mocha from oak. (HS)
