2005 Pillar Rock Cabernet Sauvignon Stags Leap District (USA, California, Napa Valley, Stags Leap District)

Dark, yes. Nose: sweet cassis, black cherry and kirsch royal. Black fruit attack on the tongue; Unfortunately, there is a lot of drying as well. I was hoping that by letting this sit in the decanter would have brought it out more. After 2 hours this remains one dimensional and hallow centered. Too bad as I sense this had many of the components of a good to great wine, but falls short. My score reflects hope for an emergence of sort; we still have that...... 88pts
