2005 Cadence Winery Red Wine Klipsun Vineyard Red Mountain
Producer: Cadence Winery
Style: Red Wine
Grape Type: Bordeaux Blend
Region: Columbia Valley
89 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - November/December 2007
($45) Medium red. Aromas of plum syrup, redcurrant, boysenberry and nutty oak. Fat, round and sweet, with good breadth and subtle suggestions of plum, mocha and tobacco leaf. The dusty, broad tannins build on the back but avoid dryness, allowing the finish to express itself. Incidentally, beginning with the 2006 vintage, Ben Smith will be working solely with Tapteil, Ciel du Cheval and his own Cara Mia estate vineyard next to Tapteil, where he has 8.5 acres under vine at a relatively dense 3 foot by 8 foot spacing.
