2005 Heitz Cellar "Martha's Vineyard" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

93 points Wine Spectator: "Minty bay leaf aromas are pure, with a spicy edge, leading to firm dark berry, mocha, mineral and sage flavors that are tight and well-structured, with firm, ripe tannins that provide an excellent backbone. Much too young now, however tempting. Should only get much better. Best from 2013 through 2022. (JL)" (11/2011) K&L Notes: Martha's Vineyards has become one of the most well known Cabernets around the world for its unique mintiness, its rich layers of complexity and its remarkable overall balance. The 2005 growing season enjoyed almost perfect weather conditions t... Read More »

2005 Rubicon Estate "Rubicon" Rutherford Bordeaux Blend

96 points Wine Enthusiast: "**Top 100 Cellar Selections of 2009** Made from 98% Cabernet Sauvignon, with no Merlot or Cabernet Franc for the first time, the ’05 Rubicon tastes bigger and more impenetrable than any previous vintage. It’s thick and heavy at this time, with furry tannins and undeniably ripe flavors of blackberries, black currants, cherries, violets, chocolate and cedar, and a tang of melted minerals. Desperately needs time in the cellar. Nowhere near ready for at least four years, and that may be conservative.Tasted three times, and better each time, a seriously good ...Read More »

2005 Spring Mountain Vineyard Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

91 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Cellar Selection* This complex, young wine needs time. It's tannic and closed, although it has a rich heart of black currants, spice and minerals, accented by nearly 2 years in oak. Nowhere near ready, but an elegant example of classic Napa mountain Cab. Should start to be approachable after 2010." (6/2009)

2005 Joseph Phelps Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon New!
2005 Joseph Phelps Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

90 points Connoisseurs Guide: "Here is a deep and yet relatively winsome young Cabernet that strikes a different stance than those in the brooding, muscle-bound crowd. Rich and wide open with sweet fruit and oak to spare, it is an overt and hedonistic wine whose pleasures need no searching to find. It has tannin enough for structure and it shows the right kind of grip at the finish, and its great virtues of plentiful fruit and fine balance are the prerequisites for a half-dozen years of further growth." (8/2008) 90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Good deep ruby-red. Claret-like aromas of blackberry, currant bud, bitter c ...Read More »

2005 Heitz Cellar "Trailside Vineyard" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Back In Stock!
2005 Heitz Cellar "Trailside Vineyard" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

90 points Wine Spectator: "This fine new release, with some bottle age, shows signs of subtle maturity. Aromas of mocha, cedar, dried currant and spice box follow through to a full body, This is well-built, with fine balance and good length. (Web-2011)" K&L Notes: In the early 1980s, the Heitz Family acquired a marvelous Rutherford vineyard bordered on one side by the Silverado Trail and nudged on the other by the Conn Creek. Thus the Trailside Vineyard was born. Aged for three-and-a-half years in a combination of American and French Limousin oak, the 2005 is elegantly perfumed to complement a... Read More »

2005 Corison Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Back In Stock!
2005 Corison Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

95 points Wine Enthusiast: "This wine is so balanced it hits the palate as impeccable and gorgeous. The flavors, of currants, cherries, vanilla and sweet oak, are only part of it. It is so dry, so richly structured in tannins and acids, so pure through the long, spicy finish, that it easily deserves its high score. Will age well for up to a decade." (2/2009) 92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Good full ruby-red. Musky aromas of dried cherry, cedar, fresh herbs, incense and tobacco. Dense, juicy and fine-grained, with lovely verve to its delineated flavors of raspberry, spices, loam, leather and herbs. Finishes ripe ...Read More »

2005 Shafer "Hillside Select" Stags Leap District Cabernet Sauvignon

99 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "One of the world’s great wines and profound expressions of Cabernet Sauvignon, is the 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon Hillside Select. This wine spends more than 30 months in 100% new oak, and, year in year out, has been one of the most singular and profound examples of Cabernet Sauvignon in the world. It seems Shafer began to ratchet up performance during the 1990s, and the first decade of the 21st century has provided a treasure trove of either perfect or nearly perfect wines, including the 2001, 2002, 2004, 2005, 2007 and more recently the 2010, 2012 and, in ...Read More »

2005 Pahlmeyer Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend

95 points Connoisseurs Guide: "Pahlmeyer will never be accused of undue winemaking restraint, and its latest red-wine opus is draughted in the deep, highly ripened, very big-bodied style for which the label is famed. An absolutely mouthfilling effort that is piled high with layers of curranty fruit, raspberries, sweet oak, caramel and loamy spice, it is so rich that it verges on sweetness at times. It wants for at least another five or six years of aging and, even then, it will need to be paired with the richest, most succulent meat dishes."

2005 Vine Cliff Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon Back In Stock!
2005 Vine Cliff Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon

93 points Wine Spectator: "Creamy-textured, intense and focused, with ripe, vibrant black cherry, currant, anise and plum notes that are well-structured, with lively acidity and firm yet ripe tannins. (JL)" (10/2008) 92 points Wine Enthusiast: "Ungainly now, with upfront, edgy tannins that interfere with the enjoyment of this wine, making it feel hard and astringent. However, there's a wealth of well-ripened cassis, bitter chocolate, cedar and anise flavors that are so powerful, the wine should easily ride out midterm aging." (12/2008)

2005 Colgin "Cariad" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend

100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The blend that Colgin fashions from three vineyards owned by David Abreu (Madrona, Thorevilos and Howell Mountain) is called Cariad. The 2005 Proprietary Red Cariad consists of 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot, 11% Cabernet Franc and 9% Petit Verdot. Offering up spring flowers and garden aromas, sweet blueberry and black raspberry fruit, a touch of charcoal embers, graphite and background toast, it is fleshy and full-bodied, and again, meriting a three-digit score. This is absolutely remarkable wine. As it sat in the glass, it developed some rather com ...Read More »

Bid on this bottle of 2005 Colgin "Cariad" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend (100RP, 97VN, 95WE, 94JS, 94ST, 94WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The blend that Colgin fashions from three vineyards owned by David Abreu (Madrona, Thorevilos and Howell Mountain) is called Cariad.

This is absolutely remarkable wine. As it sat in the glass, it developed some rather compelling chocolaty, licorice undertones. This is a great classic to drink over the next 20-25 years. By the way, for those interested, the cooperage generally chosen is dominated by Taransaud barrels, but there are at least four different coopers. (RP)" (06/2015)

2005 Sloan Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This vineyard, high above the Rutherford AVA, on the gorgeous hillside not far from the famed restaurant and hotel Auberge du Soleil, has produced a winner in my retrospective of 2005s. This is clearly a great terroir, and that comes through in this savory, broad, expansive, pure 2005 Proprietary Red from Sloan. Offering black raspberry and blackcurrant fruit, silky tannins, notes of forest floor and spice box, and loamy soil undertones, the wine is dense, full-bodied, opulent, and just entering its plateau of maturity, where it should keep for another 1 ...Read More »
