Winemaker's Notes

(From 2006 Vintage) Complex aromas of dark fruit, spice and balanced oak notes. In addition to the classic Cabernet characters of black cherry, blackberry and cassis, there are also notes of black licorice, star anise, coriander and bay leaf spices. Starting with a ripe, bold mouth-feel, there is a wonderful complexity to this vintage. Ripe fruit, cherry candy and floral characters linger as layers of fruit continue to reveal themselves. There is an earthy, mature tannin texture from the Rutherford Dust and mountain vineyards that contribute to create a bitter-sweet cocoa powder taste and feel.
