Clark-Claudon 2005 Estate Cabernet – Retail 90.00 – NOW 69.90
Robert Parker 94 Points: “This family-owned vineyard in the northeast mountains of Napa Valley has produced a sensational 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate. Its dense ruby/purple hue is followed by a Pauillac-like perfume of spice box, cedar, black currants, and subtle background oak. The wine is full-bodied with sweet but noticeable tannins, and a savory, expansive mouthfeel. Drink this beauty now and
over the next 15-20 years.”
The 2005 Estate Cabernet Sauvignon, darker than the most recent vintages, presents with heightened aromas of cassis, violets, fine cedar, & bright black cherries. This medium bodied wine fills front, middle and back pallet with round, complex layers of fruit, spice and fine textured French Oak. To drink now, give this wine a chance to breath or allow it to evolve overtime in your cellar; well balanced, elegant and perfectly integrated, it leaves a long signature finish of roasted chocolate; Yes, 2005 was a very good year! Drink now-2025.
