87 Points

Monday, August 27, 2012 - Quite disappointing, given my love for SLD cabs, the good early reviews on this wine, and my experiences with the '06. Despite fine storage, this wine looked older than other '05s in the glass. Nice nose, but the palate seemed marred by an overripe, prune/raisin note and significant heat on the back end. A recent bottle of the '09 showed a hint of these characteristics, but they're too much here in the '05.
