2005 Canis Major Cabernet Sauvignon
Always our “big dog” among Canis Major wines, combining 100%
French oak barrels with intense lush Cabernet fruit. Yet in today’s
world of full-throttle, over-the-top Cabernets, it actually has wonderful
balance and drinkability.
Tight aromas of new French oak and hints of red and black fruits
signal the wine’s youth. Bright fruit flavors combine with caramel and
toasty oak in a structured mid palette that explodes into a chewy,
dense finish with sweet, ripe tannins. Drinks great now!
