2005 XY Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon - Stevens Winery
This is the 3rd release of our coveted 2005 StevensXY Reserve Cabernet. Once again, we selected a small grouping of our favorite barrels to put into this very muscular all Cab blend. We used more new French oak (75%) to drive the fruit and tannins. The result is a wine that accelerates you smoothly into the fast lane. The fruit for this years blend came from two sources: Dineen Vineyard in the Upper Yakima, which brought lots of cocoa and black raspberry flavors, while the DuBrul Vineyard, Mid Yakima Valley, lent structure, earthiness and finesse.
