Cliff Lede Cabernet Sauvignon Poetry 2005, 1.5L (WA95) from The BPW - Merchants of rare and fine wines.

Cliff Lede Cabernet Sauvignon Poetry

1.5L

Vintage: 2005
Region: US
Appellation: Stags Leap, Napa

WA95
Rated 95 points by Robert Parker`s Wine Advocate: `The 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon Poetry (925 cases of 89% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Malbec, and the rest Petit Verdot and Merlot) is the richest of these wines. Superbly deep ruby/purple-colored with notes of blackberry, cassis, licorice, subtle smoke, and incense, this opulent wine has a plush palate, silky tannins, impressive purity, stature, and length. However, the tannins are there and the wine still tastes primary despite its enormous potential. Give it 3-4 years of bottle age and drink it over the following three decades. Canadian businessman Cliff Lede has Michelle Edwards as his winemaker, David Abreu as his viticulturalist, and of course none other than Michel Rolland as his winemaking consultant, so big things are expected. If 2005 is any indication, they are already well on their way to making world-class wines. This 60-acre property with the vineyards and winery in the Stags Leap area and the winery right on the Yountville cross (across the road from another up-and-coming superstar, Kapcsandy) made their first vintages in 2002, but I think the 2005s move this winery to higher ground. Tel. (800) 428-2259; Fax (707) 944-8020` -- Tasting note by Robert Parker
