2005 Jones Family Vineyards Estate Cabernet

"Deep ruby in color with fully ripe fruit aromas of plum jam, black cherry, and cassis. In the mouth it is quite lush and shows off perfect ripeness and richness. The wine hits on all cylinders. Very fruit forward on the palate with a nice almost chewy dusty texture and well-integrated tannins. Layers of sweet toasty French oak compliment the plumy, cherry flavors. Hints of black olive and cedar add complexity. Wonderfully harmonious with good length and power.”
