"From Howell Mountain, the 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon Rancho Del Oso spends a little longer in oak than the other Sbragia wines, about 24 months. It offers up a deep ruby/purple color and lots of graphite, blackcurrant, floral notes, and more blackberry and cassis on the mouth. It’s dense, full-bodied and ripe with underlying minerality. Drink it over the next 12-15+ years.
Ed Sbragia already had a sensational legacy as the master winemaker for top wines at Beringer before he founded his own brand. His pricing philosophy is to be admired, as is the quality of the wines. In short, consumers are receiving outstanding value."
