2005 V Madrone Cabernet Sauvignon
This Cabernet shows beautiful expressive notes of blackberry, plum compote, black licorice, wheat toast, graphite and wet earth. The palate is congruent with the nose in the abundance of dark fruit, depth of character and firm, yet supple tannins. This is a powerful wine with a destiny for greatness and will age gracefully for 20 years or longer.
