Kamen Cabernet Sauvignon 2005
|Region||California, Sonoma County, Sonoma Valley|
The 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon has closed down since I tasted it last year. Exhibiting a dense ruby/purple hue similar to the 2006's, it is restrained aromatically, but is intense on the palate, revealing full-bodied flavors (sweet black raspberries and black currants), silky tannins, beautiful fruit depth, and a long finish. It can be enjoyed over the next 15+ years.
Rich and intense without being heavy, combining ripe, spicy currant and blackberry-laced fruit with hints of sandalwood and cedar, ending with a dash of anise. Drink now through 2013.
