Winemaker's notes:
Intense and deep red in colour, Don Maximiano 2005 stands out for its ripe character of cherry fruit that blends with light notes of blackcurrant, truffle, and clove. Aromas of cigar box and black pepper contribute to a lightly spicy side, thereby raising its aromatic complexity. On the palate this wine is big and muscular with mouthfilling tannins that reflect the predominance of Cabernet Sauvignon in the blend. The remaining varieties lend complexity, with Petit Verdot for freshness and nerve, Cabernet Franc for tannins and its spicy aromatic profile, and Shiraz for its sweet, ripe black fruit. French oak barrel ageing lends flavours of caramel, chocolate, and cloves that linger nicely on the long finish. This wine is delightful today, but will improve in the bottle over the next years for even greater pleasure in the future. Decanting is suggested.
