    Winemaker's Notes:

    This 2006 Vogt Cabernet Sauvignon was made in both open-and closed-top tanks, which produced a wine with great concentration. The dark fruit flavors of berry and cassis are intensified by some natural floral and spice nuances. The palate is rich and coating with an intensity that comes from low-production, hillside fruit. Toasty oak integrates well with the firm yet polished tannins that, although approachable now, will resolve with some time in the bottle.

    Critical Acclaim:

    This densely structured wine is so dry and tannic the palate just puckers up into resistance. Buried deep down are massive and properly proportioned flavors of blackberries, black currants, dark unsweetened chocolate and smoky new oak. This intense 100% Cabernet should begin to blossom by 2012 and last for many years. Cellar Selection.

    Made from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon Vogt Vineyard comes from a 15-acre parcel high on Howell Mountain. In addition to its opaque blue/purple color, it exhibits tons of minerality, medium to full body, impressive depth, and abundant blue and black fruit characteristics intermixed with notes of flowers and crushed rocks. The wine is frightfully tannic, but there is enough concentration to balance it out. Forget it for 5-6 years and drink it over the following 25 years.

    Black and impenetrable when first poured, this wine's austere mineral tannins recall Howell Mountain cabernets of the early 1990s. A day of air brings out the broad, black currant flavors in the fruit, while the tannin remains dense and dry. Decant it for slow-roasted short ribs if you open it now; otherwise, give this ten or 12 years in the cellar.

    This wine definitely shows off it's mountain fruit. It has a tasty oak and berry flavor that lingers in your mouth making you want just one more sip...:) I would suggest holding it for a few more yrs but it you can't then decant it. It's BIG, BOLD, and DELICIOUS!
