The 2005 vintage of this Cabernet-Carmenère blend is dark as night, thick as a side of beef, and sweet like a dessert. Licorice, molasses, graphite and blackberry share the unctuous nose, while the palate is tannic, rich and tastes like baked black fruits, coffee and chocolate pudding. Bordering on syrupy in its ripeness, so drink sooner rather than later.
