Drink: 2015 - 2025

The very last vintage (starting in 2006 this vineyard became part of the second wine of La Mission-La Chapelle), this dense ruby/purple-colored, well-textured, broodingly backward 2005 is a 2,000-case blend of 41% Cabernet Franc, 32% Merlot, and 27% Cabernet Sauvignon. Displaying notes of scorched earth, smoke, and asphalt, medium body, and elevated tannin, it needs 7-8 years to reveal its full potential. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2025.
