"Color: bright; Nose: closed; Aromas: spicy; Acidity: supple; Sweetness: dry; Body: tannic; Finish: short; Overall: slighly unbalanced; Disappointing. bitter taste with ok fruit... Tannins coming in early and dominating the taste at the end. some Chocolate in the early mouth... I'm guessing that it would be better in a couple of years after the tannins mellow."

"The Indian Wells Cabernet is our warm climate ripe, jammy Cabernet. The 2005 bottling is no exception. The wine exudes sweet blackberry pie and vanilla aromas and flavors with loads of complexity. This is our big bold, obvious Cabernet and after just two vintages, it has quickly become a fan favorite. Wonderful Cab from such esteemed growers as Indian Wells, Jones, Washington Fruit and even Cold Creek Vineyard are woven together with a little Syrah to make a wine that says boldly ā€˜Iā€™m from Washington.ā€™ Meant to enjoy in its youth, try it with shish kabobs, a flat iron steak or even with a nibble of dark chocolate. -Bob Bertheau, Head Winemaker "
