This wine is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (60%), Sangiovese (30%) and Petit Verdot (10%). Nice raspberry, cherry and dark berry components with a little graphite, tar — and a bit of damp forest floor. Ample body with lush, silky tannins. 13.5% alcohol. 1,650 cases produced.
96 points and number 29 on the Wine Spectators 100 Top Wines from 2005. Very nice wine, but more along the lines of 91-93 points in my book. Certainly not a great value, but an enjoyable bottle of wine.
