The Bei du Rocchi Ranch is located near Cazadero in the Sonoma Coast appellation, not exactly the first place one would go looking for top-flight Cabernet. But the 2005 Two Rock Block red wine from this vineyard - a 100% Cabernet in this vintage - is absolutely delicious. An almost Zin-like fruit density in the nose is followed by rich flavors of dark berries and currant jam along with subtle touches of eucalyptus, sage, and vanilla. Round and full in the mouth, beautifully structured for aging, with a lush finish. As good as the 2004 is, I think the 2005 is even better. - HK 2011-02-10
