  • 2005 Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon
    Super elegant and soft cabernet from the Napa Valley floor in Oakville. Very round texture, soft and elegant. Harmonious layers of dried herb, blackberry, cassis, dried peach and spice…dusty and very pretty gingerbread on the balanced finish.
  • 2005 Napa Valley Syrah
    Grown on the Napa Valley floor on the Silverado Trail near Bale Lane, this is a very special Syrah, one with a beautiful spring bouquet with touches of cedar and sweet wood. Black currants, blackberries, and rich spices linger on the pallet finishing with a hint of vanilla. This is a very ripe and delicious red.

The 2005 growing season was a winemakers dream, though he may not have realized it at the time. An unseasonably cool and rainy spring set the stage for the grapes to achieve optimal acid and juice qualities. This was followed by a mild summer that allowed for slow ripening and the achievement of the skins and complex, soft tannins.
