Vinography: a wine blog Dark garnet in the glass, this wine smells of bright cherry, cedar, and
graphite. In the mouth, lavender and dried flowers, swirl in a
crystalline bright sphere of flavor that glints with gorgeous brightness
and juiciness. Incredibly fine grained tannins add a skein of structure
to the glassy pure fruit. Phenomenal acidity makes for a long citrusy
finish. Utterly fresh and compelling. A knockout of a wine. 13.6%
alcohol. Score: a perfect 10. Alder Yarrow, vinography.com, 6.27.2015

CAL CABS TO HUNT DOWN FROM 2005 “Make
no mistake, California 2005 Cabs are juicy, full-flavoured and potent,
yet many of them show restraint…Warm, spicy, berry nose. Fine, plum
jam, spicy notes. Plenty of weight. Firm, crisp tannins. Nice length…has
the structure and moderate alcohol (13.6%) to age for years.
Blackcurrant, Christmas spice, tobacco... Closes with succulence and
crispness.” Corison, Napa Valley "5 Stars" Decanter Magazine 2008

Corison coaxed a smoky, anise-tinged effort from the 2005 vintage.
Balanced, fresh and ripe, with sweet black fruit, plum graphite and a
big grippy finish, very much in line with her more structured, firmly
tannic and age worthy approach."
