Harvest Notes: While 2005 was a challenging year for fine wines with late rains in spring, a few frosts, and a cool summer and fall, Calistoga's location provided an advantage in ripening windows.
Tasting Notes: The nose has deep black licorice and young black fruit. The palate has grown over time, and shows lively plum and fig jam up front and lingering berry and chocolate on the finish.
