    Winemaker's Notes:

    Made with a blend of 86% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Merlot, and 7% Cabernet Franc, the 2006 Domus Aurea has a dazzling ruby color and an earthy, balsamic nose with hints of orange zest and chocolate. Aged for 18 months in French oak and another 18 months in the bottle, the Domus is juicy, concentrated, and balanced, with fine, well-integrated tannins. Outstanding with grilled lamb, mushrooms and sweet red peppers.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Lilting, inviting aromas of mulled mint and warm espresso lead the way for a rich but supple palette of warm fig, currant preserve and bittersweet licorice. The long, suave finish lets a loamy edge play out. Old-school and lovely. Drink now through 2013. 2,760 cases made.

    Domus Aurea's 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon is a glass-coating opaque purple color. It exhibits an aromatic array of wood smoke, Asian spices, rose petal, cinnamon, and blackcurrant. Dense and layered on the palate, with chewy extract, it is structured for the long haul. Only a slight trace of bitterness in the finish keeps the score from being exceptional.

    My husband and I LOVE Cabernet Sauvignon. We are fond of Chilian Cabernet Sauvignon's and this one does not disappoint. Perfect blend. Not too harsh.
