    95+ The 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon Paradise Hills Vineyard (1,200 cases) reveals a chocolatey espresso roast note with mocha, blackberry and cassis, high tannins, but full body, superb concentration, purity, and an almost Graves-like scorched earth character. This wine needs 3-4 years of bottle age, and should last 25-30 years.

    93+ (100% Cabernet Sauvignon, like all of the earlier vintages): Deep ruby-red. Distinctly cooler on the nose than the 2004, offering scented aromas of blackberry, violet, bitter chocolate, tobacco and wild herbs, along with a hint of hay and a citrus high note. Surprisingly dense and creamy on entry, then firm acidity and underlying minerality give shape to the rather wild flavors of black fruits, herbs and violet. Can't match the opulence or depth of the 2004 but this initially slightly rigid wine opened nicely with air. Made from a large crop; Michel Rolland was responsible for the final blend.
