After aging for 20 months in 80% new Darnajou and Taransaud barrels, the 2005 Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon emerged dark ruby red in color, with an exotically perfumed nose of violet and blackberry, a hint of creosote and the essence of grilled bread. The wine's palate continued to develop after bottling to reveal notes of casis, cola and raspberry laced with mineral-rich tones. The finish is long and sweet, with just enough tannin to extend it a full 30 seconds.
