Wine Description

(2006 Vintage) 92 points Robert Parker: ...50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 45% Syrah, and 5% Petit Verdot... Reminiscent of a northern Rhone blended with a Bordeaux, it exhibits sweet cassis, graphite, and a chalky, powdery minerality, good structure, and full body. As the wine sits in the glass, hints of espresso roast and white chocolate emerge. This structured, slightly backward, well-endowed 2006 should age effortlessly for 10-15 years. (Aug 2009)
