Rated: 88 by Josh Raynolds, Jul/Aug 08 Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar Bright ruby-red color. Sharply focused cherry and blackcurrant aromas are deepened by mocha and black tea. Zestier red fruit flavors are a bit wound up initially but gain sweetness and flesh with air, picking up dusty tannins as well. The nervy, brisk finish leaves behind a strong redcurrant quality.

Wine & Spirits(2006 Vintage) The 2006 Cabernet was aged for 6 months, 70% in tank and 30% in seasoned French oak. Dark ruby/purple-colored, it has an expressive nose of spice box and black currants. This leads to a medium-bodied, smooth-textured, easy-going wine with abundant sweet fruit, light tannin, and a long, fruit-filled finish. Drink this outstanding value over the next 6 years.
