Named after the super-luxury car of the same name the extraordinary 2005 Materium (614 cases) has more in common with a first-growth like Chateau Margaux than a Napa Cabernet Sauvignon. It boasts a deep ruby/purple color along with a striking bouquet of blue and black fruits intermingled with acacia flowers lead pencil shavings and licorice excellent fruit medium to full body substantial but sweet tannins and compelling harmony among its acidity alcohol tannin and extract. This sensational 2005 eclipses even the brilliant 2004. It should easily last 25 or more years.

Sweet dense chewy and broad but with firm acidity giving shape and aromatic lift to the berry spice and floral flavors. Winemaker Thomas Brown noted that it was necessary to let the fruit hang for a long time to get thorough ripeness even at the risk of picking a few raisins. And yet this retains a juicy quality and displays lovely lingering perfume. 91 points

Remains fresh and bright with a... Deep ruby color. Beautiful aromas of chocolate blackberry casis and subtle oak. There is a nice floral component with lots of deep red fruits as well. Silky and soft on the mid palate. Remains fresh and bright with a silky smooth finish. Everything is in beautiful harmony.
