Similar notes as last time. Good, not great. I think this vintage has already hit its prime. The tannins were well integrated and the fruit tasted as if it was beginning to fade.

Initially tasted a little stewed, but opened up beautifully with air. No fruit bomb, the flavors tend to be more earthy with some cedar, tobacco, and mint. Elegant and smooth.

Wine Advocate # 180 Dec 2008 Robert Parker 90+ Drink: N/A $80-$140 (100) The dense ruby/purple-hued 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve's big, sweet nose reveals aromas of creme de cassis, licorice, cedar, and spice box. Medium to full-bodied, elegant, restrained, and made in a distinctively Bordeaux style, it possesses admirable purity, texture, and length. It is delicate and poised as opposed to flamboyant, and should age easily for 15-18 years.

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
