2005 Richard Partridge Cabernet Sauvignon
Winemaking:2005 was a long, moderate harvest, which allowed for a full flavor maturity and soft, balanced tannin structure. The wine was aged for 20 months in 100% French Oak, and it was bottled in June 2007.
The Vineyards:Grapes were sourced from the Hoopes (Oakville) and Batuello (St. Helena) vineyards.
Tasting Notes:Aromas of cassis, plum, vanilla, and cloves. The mouth is ripe and opulent, full of red fruits and berry flavors. The tannins are balanced and velvety, with a long, persistent, fruit driven finish.
