95 pts. : December, 2007

The 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon Poetry (925 cases of 89% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Malbec, and the rest Petit Verdot and Merlot) is the richest of these wines. Superbly deep ruby/purple-colored with notes of blackberry, cassis, licorice, subtle smoke, and incense, this opulent wine has a plush palate, silky tannins, impressive purity, stature, and length. However, the tannins are there and the wine still tastes primary despite its enormous potential. Give it 3–4 years of bottle age and drink it over the following three decades.

Smooth, rich and fleshy, this is elegant and stylish, with savory herb, current and blackberry fruit that’s intense, concentrated, focused and persistent. Needs time. Best from 2011 through 2018.
