Review
"The 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon Backus Vineyard is backward and restrained, and like so many wines from this vintage, exhibits the cooler climate and European style of the Bordeaux varietals. It is a fullbodied powerful wine, but it will need 5-7 years of bottle age, and last at least three decades. I believe it is only hinting at its ultimate potential given how closed the wine tasted but it is impressively endowed and well-made."
