93 Points

Sunday, June 12, 2011 - Decanted for an hour then rebottled and consumed over about 3 hours. Similar to previous TN. Just wanted to drink this wine again in its current state of development before laying down my remaining bottles for a few years. Great balance between youth and maturity. Still some primary ripe red and black fruits with nice secondary notes of chocolate, tobacco and some vanilla oak. Long finish with soft tannins. This is in a great place right now and exhibits a lush mouthfeel with great balance and complexity. This is one of my favorite '05 Napa cabs.
