Wine Details

Wine Description

(From 2006 Vintage) The 2006 vintage blends in small amounts of Merlot, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc, whch give the wine added complexity aromatically and structurally. The bouquet spills out of the glass with licorice, briar fruit and vanilla aromas, with subtler tones of honey, roasted nuts and cocoa powder. Full-throttle briar fruit on the palate is complemented by flavors of cinnamon and toast, dried currants and cherries, with cedary spice on the finish.

Winemaker's Notes

The gorgeous dark and dense magenta hues give sense to this wine's concentration and power. The bouquet is loaded with intense aromas of cassis, hints of dry mission figs, and ripe plum compote that mélange in harmony, enhanced by cedar and leather scents. The palate is lush with savory dark fruit and a hint of sweet oak and black pepper. The wine is well structured with soft tannins that envelop the palate.

    Deep purple, opaque. Nose was a little tight. Loads of jammy fruit, caramel, baking spices and a hint of spearmint. Very full bodied with smooth tannins. Not over the top / in your face for a Napa Cab.
