This deeply opaque, ruby wine expresses a lushly perfumed bouquet of fresh blackberries, sun
kissed figs, Belgian dark chocolate and Cuban cigars with overtones of rich dark coffee beans, black licorice, cloves and black pepper. A voluptuous and round mouthfeel offers sumptuous jam, figs and cassis, with a hint of vanilla bean and hazelnut. Balanced and structured with lingering soft tannins and a silky long finish. Drink over the next 7 years.

Wine Advocate

100% Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2005 Gold is an elegant, leaner-styled effort displaying a dark ruby color, good acidity, surprising freshness, medium body, and a European-like flavor as well as aromatic profile. Consume it over the next 7-8 years.

Score: 88-90. —Robert Parker, December 2006.
