The 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon St. Eden is from an 11-acre vineyard on the foothills north of the Oakville crossroad that has the classic red, rocky soil of this area, essentially in the foothills of the Vaca Mountains that define the eastern edges of Napa Valley. This wine, which shows notes of new saddle leather, Christmas fruitcake and spice, is broad and savory, with a classic full-bodied mouthfeel, stunning purity and sensational flavors of wild forest mixed with blackberry and cassis fruit. This blend can be drunk now, or cellared for at least another two decades. - Robert M. Parker, Jr.

Rich creamy and broad; this is almost too big for the mouth. The sweetness of fruit and minerality here are utterly compelling and the wine's perfectly integrated acidity gives it a near-perfect balance. Finishes with noble tannins and outstanding persistence. A beauty.
