2005 Alexander Valley Cyrus Red Blend

Immediately after opening, this red wine felt very tight and enclosed.  It is a dry and full-bodied red wine with solid tannins and nice long finish. After letting it breath for a while, it drank well with flavors of dark cherry, plum, and blackberry  coming through the most.

Rich and darker ruby color. I would highly recommend decanting for more than one hour and pairing this with red meats and others  that can hold up to the intensity of the wine.

Composition:
76% Cabernet Sauvignon
10% Merlot
10% Cabernet Franc
2% Malbec
2% Petit Verdot
