Levendi Estates-Cabernet Sauvignon-Stagecoach Vineyard-Napa Valley-California-2005-$38.99-A nose of dark fruit and cassis, dark purple in color.  A big full bodied single vineyard Cab, with blackberry, cassis, currants, vanilla and minerals, did not decant long enough to get profile.  This is still a young wine that needs a very long decant or more time in the cellar.             WS-88           CR-90                Good with steak, chicken, ribs.
