The 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon is big and lush with
huge gobs of fruit in the aroma and flavor. The texture of the wine is soft and
supple, typical of Cabernet Sauvignons grown in our area of the Oakville AVA.
Patience during bottle aging will reward the steward with an outstanding bottle
over the next 10 to 15 years.
Menu suggestion: I enjoy a glass of Oakville Cabernet with a grass-fed,
roasted New York steak and a potato-butternut squash gratin. Kimball Jones,
