2005 David Coffaro Aca Modot

Ruby red, faintly translucent. Bright cherry and spice nose. On the palate there are cherries, plums, bit of cedar box. The fruit is still bright, a bit simple at this point but pleasant. Air and food bring out a peppery note. Soft tannins, nice acidity and balance. Finishes moderately long with red fruits. At 17 years on, this is fading but still very nice. I'd drink up in the 3 to 4 years. 64% Cabernet Sauvignon; 14 % Cabernet Franc; 14% Merlot; 8% Petite Verdot. "B+" but on a down slope.
