2005 MASTERY “PROPRIETARY RED”
A love affair for Master Sommelier Kevin Vogt, this Masterful Napa Valley Blend was skillfully guided from grape to bottle by Philippe Melka, whose vast experience includes winemaker at Vineyard 29, Brand, Dana, and formerly Bryant Family, Quintessa, Hundred Acre, Dominus, to name a few highlights. This is a rare chance to try Vogt’s maiden vintage, a wine sommeliers around the country are clamoring for… This ’05 is really singing right now with a bouquet so riveting it’s nearly indescribable, and depth so captivating it’s a palate performance that you won’t forget.
The wine originates from one of Napa Valley’s most prized, and unique vineyards. Gemstone Estate is divided in to small micro-blocks of distinguished clones allowing one of the most talented winemakers in the world to compose a truly distinctive and compelling blend. Philippe Melka fermented each individual lot at Vineyard 29’s state-of-the-art winemaking facility and aged them for 22 months in French oak barrels (85% new) from producers which include Taransaud, Ermitage and Baron. With nearly 9 years in the bottle, the results are simply stunning and it’s absolutely ready to drink now, yet will age gracefully for years to come in your cellar…

currant and spice. Rich and full-bodied, this has a nice tannic grip and
plenty of depth to the flavors. Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and
Merlot. Drink now through 2016. 356 cases made. –JL" 92 Points, Wine Spectator
