A really unique blend (mostly Cabernet Sauvignon with some Syrah and a teensy bit of Carmenére). Nice dark purple with complex aromas of dark fruit, oak/vanilla, herbs. Still young, this is smooth, full bodied and quite delicious. Tons of fruit and plenty of oak and lots of smooth tannin but all in good balance. Long finish.

I found these on sale at Crossroads LCBO for around $54. A fair price for this quality. I wouldn't open another for a few more years.

The '05s are available now and should be equally good, if not better.
