Cosentino 2005 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon (Napa Valley)

Tastes way too oaky at the moment, with a flood of vanilla, sweet charred wood and smoky butter flavors swamping the underlying fruit, which consists of blackberries and cassis. May be going through a phase of immaturity. Could well re-emerge after 2010, but its future is hard to predict, as it's made in a soft, Napa way, and these wines have yet to prove their longevity.
