Wine Description

(2006 Vintage) The 2005 vintage of this wine was ranked #7 on the Wine Spectator's Top 10 Wines of 2008

Very intense color. Very strong nose, dominated above all by fruity notes and a high mineral content. Cultivation methods add a touch of additional complexity. Strong palate and full-flavored. The wine is structured, with very smooth tannins. The finish is long and savory.

Cabernet Sauvignon 62%, Merlot 33%, Cabernet Franc 3%, Petit-Verdot 2%

    Actually had the 2008 which was decent but not as good a 2006.
