The wine shows intense ruby color. The very seductive nose reveals fresh crushed berries of cassis, strawberry and cherry essence. The attack in the mouth is dense with soft texture and layered with fruit. It expresses the finesse and harmony of a 'grand vin'. The finish arrives with vibrancy and pure tannins.

Wine AdvocateThe 2005 J. Daniel Cuvee is a slightly more restrained version of the 2004 and 2003. Elegant berry fruit interwoven with notes of crushed rocks, flowers, and red as well as black currants, a sweet palate, ripe tannin, and tremendous intensity are characteristics of this more reserved, European-styled cuvee. It should be consumed during its first 15 years of life.

Wine SpectatorSmooth-textured, rich and polished, this stylish wine offers a mix of herb, currant, black cherry and plum fruit that's ripe and well-proportioned, ending with graceful tannins. Best from 2009 through 2013. 710 cases made.
