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 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 Hewitt Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon Back In Stock!
2005 Hewitt Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon

95 points Connoisseurs Guide: "In its brief history, Hewitt has already made a name for itself as a producer of big, massively extracted Cabernets and, while this most recent version adheres to the norms of muscle and mass, it does so with a little more polish than shown in the past. Very deep, very ripe and very full-bodied, it is bursting with wonderfully concentrated, curranty fruit and is further lifted by loads of sweet oak. Its sense of polish makes it remarkably approachable even now, but the wise choice is cellaring, and we would counsel five or six years of patience. ...Read More »

2005 Ramey "Pedregal" Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Readers looking for a Screaming Eagle look-alike should check out David Ramey’s 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon Pedregal (85% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15% Petit Verdot), a wine that has put on amazing richness and intensity since last year. Beautifully pure creme de cassis fruit interwoven with notions of spring flowers, espresso roast, and truffles jump from the glass of this wine. Wonderfully sweet, expansive fruit flavors, a massive, full-bodied palate, and superb elegance as well as purity suggest this stunner should drink well for 20-25+ years.

2005 Spring Mountain Vineyard Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (1.5L)

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 Darioush Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon New!
2005 Darioush Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

93 points Connoisseurs Guide: "**Two Stars** Once again, Darioush races to the top of the listings with a big, rich, hedonistically overachieving Cabernet, but unlike last year's * * * winner, this one is somewhat tighter and age-demanding than its predecessor. It is in the nature of the 2005 vintage that it seems to produce somewhat less lush, plush wines, and there are those who will applaud and those who will miss the genuine juiciness of Darioush's 2004. By comparison, this wine seems to have a foot in two camps, but that only makes it a bit different rather than less desirable. ...Read More »

2005 Etude Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

96 points Wine Enthusiast: "Etude’s 2005 defines power and authority, Napa style. It’s hard to imagine a Cabernet Sauvignon more explosive in blackberry, cherry and chocolate fruit flavor. Yet the structure is superb, with firm but ultrarefined tannins providing an architecture to house all that richness. Beautiful now, and should age gracefully for a decade." (3/2009) 91 points Vinous: "(14.1% alcohol; the first vintage of this wine made by Jon Priest): Bright medium ruby. Black cherry, crushed blackberry and licorice aromas are complicated by hints of tar and dried herbs. At once supple and firm, wit ...Read More »

2005 Luna Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (Previously 70)

91-93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "(2% merlot from Carneros will be added) Bright ruby-red. Lively, complex, claret-like aromas of currant, graphite, licorice, tobacco and mint. Then juicy, penetrating and tightly wound, with a silky texture and noteworthy elegance. The firm tannins arrive late, allowing this solidly structured wine to expand nicely on the back. One senses that the winery did a very good job choosing when to harvest." (6/2007) Wine Spectator: "Supple and harmonious, with herb, dried currant, anise, sage and dusty berry flavors that offer subtle hints of spice, floral and sandalwood. ...Read More »

2005 St. Clement "Oroppas" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "St. Clement’s proprietary red, the 2005 Oroppas, is primarily Cabernet Sauvignon with small quantities of Merlot and Petit Verdot included in the blend. Its deep ruby/purple hue is followed by notes of licorice, black currants, cedar, bay leaves, and toast. Ripe, round, medium to full-bodied, and opulent, it should drink well for 10-15 years." (12/2007) 90 points Wine & Spirits: "Dense with dark berry flavor, this steakhouse red has the smooth, satisfying nature of contemporary Napa Valley Cabernet. There's a rich coffee scent to the tannin, its texture chewy and sleek." (6/2008) 90 points Wine Spectator: "Rich ...Read More »

2005 Snowden "Reserve" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The real stunner is the 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve. There are 1,600 cases of this prodigious wine. Dense ruby/purple to the rim with a smoky, roasted herb, creme de cassis, melted licorice, and espresso-scented nose with subtle pain grille in the background, it is full-bodied, fleshy, with a terrific multi-dimensional mouthfeel, well-integrated acidity, and ripe, silky tannin. This is great stuff, and a fabulous Cabernet Sauvignon that may well turn out to be the best wine yet made at Snowden...(RP)" (12/2007) 90 points Vinous: "Full medium ruby.

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

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon, a blend of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Cabernet Franc, 7% Merlot and 6% Petit Verdot aged 24 months in three-fourths new French oak, it tips the scales at 14.8%, which by Ric Forman’s standards seems somewhat higher than usual. This delicious, savory, elegant wine is restrained and understated, but authoritative, which is what he does so well. It is the result of forty-plus years of winemaking experience, probably matched today only by Sonoma’s Dick Arrowood. It has a youthful, dense ruby/purple color, beautiful texture and p ...Read More »

2005 Chimney Rock "Elevage" Stags Leap District Bordeaux Blend

92 points Wine Enthusiast: "Less jammy and forward than the '04 Elevage, but more closed and tannic than the winery's regular 2005 Cabernet, this Bordeaux blend really needs time to show its stuff. It has obviously deep and impressive currant and blackberry flavors, but the tannins are significant. *Cellar Selection*" (12/2008) 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Their blend, the 2005 Proprietary Red Elevage, which is obviously composed of Bordeaux varietals such as Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot (I don’t think any Cabernet Franc is in it), has a slightly denser ruby/purple color.

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2005 Pride Mountain "Reserve" Sonoma-Napa Counties Cabernet Sauvignon (96RP, 95VN, 94WE, 93WS, 92CG). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Almost as impressive is the 2005 Cabernet Reserve, a blend of 95.5% Cabernet Sauvignon and 4.5 % Petit Verdot, in this case sourced 58% from Sonoma County and 42% from Napa. Its 14.5% alcohol is slightly lower than its sibling’s.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Named after the super-luxury car of the same name, the extraordinary 2005 Materium (614 cases) has more in common with a first-growth like Chateau Margaux than a Napa Cabernet Sauvignon. It boasts a deep ruby/purple color along with a striking bouquet of blue and black fruits intermingled with acacia flowers, lead pencil shavings, and licorice, excellent fruit, medium to full body, substantial but sweet tannins, and compelling harmony among its acidity, alcohol, tannin, and extract. This sensational 2005 eclipses even the brilliant 2004. It should easily last 25 or more years. (RP)" (12/2008)
