Monticello Vineyards 2005 Jefferson Cuvée Cabernet Sauvignon (Napa Valley)

The Jefferson Cuvée has been a good bet in Napa Cab over the years, showing elegance and power, but also balance. The '05, which contains a splash of Syrah, is rich in blackberry and dark chocolate flavors, and is made more interesting by the texture, which includes fine acidity and perfectly ripened tannins. Not an ager, but a wine to drink over the next six years.
