    Winemaker's Notes:

    Rich and concentrated, the 2006 Oroppas opens with aromas of black plum, vanilla, brown sugar and cinnamon. On the palate, flavors of black currant, roasted coffee and bittersweet chocolate are wrapped in velvety tannins. Notes of dark chocolate and raspberry jam lead to a long finish. A small amount of Cabernet Franc and Petite Verdot were added to the blend to enhance the structure and mid-palate weight. Each lot was aged separately in 75 percent new French oak barrels for nineteen months, and then blended together before bottling

    Critical Acclaim:

    The structure and pedigree of this fine wine are immediately apparent. It hits the mouth with a wonderful balance of ripe fruit, fine tannins, firm acidity and perfectly integrated oak. The deep flavors of blackberry jam spread onto buttered toast, and drizzled with anise liqueur and melted chocolate, are irresistable. But the tannins are still hard. Decant now for a few hours, or drink through 2014.

    Ultrarich and concentrated, delivering plush blackberry, currant, black cherry and spicy anise flavors that are pure, focused and full-bodied, with a long, persistent finish that ends with a supple texture. Best from 2011 through 2017. 5,072 cases made

    Absolutely gorgeous. The flavors were balanced, complimentary, rounded while remaining powerful. The petit verdot obviously added a great dark berry nuance.

    I think this wine might be the most perfect wine I have ever had the pleasure to drink. Balanced, smooth with soft tannins and nice jammy fruit. Nice, long finish.
