For our 2006 Estates Cabernet, winemaker Gordy Hill selected lots from some of his favorite blocks at our Northridge and Clifton Hill vineyards. He also blended back small amounts of Petit Verdot and Malbec for color, depth, plumpness and complexity.
The wine is dark garnet and filled with blackberries, cassis, vanilla, maple and smoke. The flavors are intense and the tannins are soft and polished. With its deep fruit and generous mouth-feel, this is textbook Wahluke Slope Cabernet.
An interesting blend, which includes 14% Petit Verdot and 7% Malbec. High acids and polished tannins set up a muscular, spicy wine with a beautiful mix of cassis, sweet plum and green olive flavors. The wine needs a good hour or more to breathe into life.
