96-Points, Wine Enthusiast — “With this bottling Goldschmidt runs with the big Oakville dogs. Classic, a dry, tremendously concentrated and oaky Cab with massive flavors of blackberry tart, cassis, anise, cocoa and cedar. So soft, you can drink it now, but the complex tannin structure and balance permit it to age for many years. The source is a tiny vineyard west of the Silverado Trail.”

Nick Goldschmidt’s Winemaker Notes — Goldschmidt Plus is a wine that exemplifies our philosophy of vine specific winemaking. We have taken what we believed to be the best patch of this tiny vineyard and crafted what turned out to be exceptional barrels of wine that really went above and beyond what we expect from the Goldschmidt Vineyard Cabernet label. The results are fabulous. Goldschmidt Plus is all about the sweet spot of the vineyard – Plus – an additional year of aging in new French oak – Plus – hand bottled, directly from barrel into bottle – Plus – we only made four barrels of it. The 2005 is great Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon. A gorgeous wine! Cheers!
