The 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon from D. R. Stephens gets a slightly higher rating largely due to more complexity and better integration of the tannins, which seems to give the wine a more expansive nose, but this is a classic Napa Cabernet, with black fruits, loamy soil notes, a hint of bouquet garni, and lots of spice box and earth. The wine is round and generously constructed, with a full-bodied, supple personality.
Pure, ripe, plum and black cherry fruit is supple and easy-drinking, picking up hints of anise, sage, blueberry and spice, ending with a smooth finish.
