A really incredible Cabernet Sauvignon for the price point! Chocolate, leather, spices - beautiful!
Dan Trcka Wine Blogger rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Tasted the 2005 vintage still readily available. When in decanter, this full bodied, fruity Cabernet has nice aromas of black currant, black cherry and vanilla, but as soon as it is in the glass, it's a bit alcoholic and the scents are of pronounced green pepper (which was unexpected for Cabernet Sauvignon and was quite unwelcomed). The tannins were subtle to refined (decant for 30 or more min) and the finish was medium. My impression: overall NICE, 88.5 pts - would not purchase it again as I feel the wine is overpriced and the green pepper notes were a bit intrusive. I however do recommend the Malbec version. Tasted July/10.
