TN: 2005 Lewelling Cabernet

The style of this wine seemed a little different than some Lewelling cabs from the late 90’s, early 2000’s- seemed a bit more elegant and more red fruits than black fruit, IMHO. Really enjoyed it!

  • 2005 Lewelling Cabernet Sauvignon - USA, California, Napa Valley, St. Helena (2/7/2010)
    Aromas of pomegranate, black cherry, cassis, caramel, and sweet licorice fill the room–what a nose! Rich, focused, long. Similar flavor as the nose, a little oaky, brawny & tannic. Drank real well with a strip steak–definitely a steak wine. Could use some time to soften up and integrate some more, but this is really good cabernet! 93+ (93 pts.)

Was this the Wight, or the Napa???

The Napa.

I had the 95 last week and it was great, so maybe you should come back to the 05 in 2020 [wink.gif]
