Ramey Jericho Canyon Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2005
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
International Wine Cellar
Saturated violet. Flamboyantly aromatic aromas of powerful blueberry and boysenberry fruit accented by cola and floral pastille. Deep, sweet and expansive, with liqueur-like dark berry flavors, a bitter suggestion of cherry pit and silky tannins for support. This became fresher with air, taking a raspberry turn and picking up mineral accents. Finishes energetic and spicy, with an expansive red berry tone and remarkable length.
Offers creamy oak in the aroma and texture, with subtle dried currant, herb and hints of cedar and spice, showing depth and richness on the finish, where the currant and blueberry flavors gain complexity. Drink now through 2012.
