    Winemaker's Notes:

    Aroma: Forward, concentrated aromas of blackberry and black currant, followed by chocolate truffle, vanilla nut and cream. Flavors: Deep, succulent Mt. Veeder fruit drives this Cabernet, underlain with signature black currant, pencil lead, cocoa, cedar and spicy mineral notes. Tannins are refined and supple, adding weight to the mid-palate. Finish: Goes on and on. Generous berry flavors build in intensity, melding with a band of refined, polished tannins.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon Mt. Veeder (81% Cabernet Sauvignon and 19% Merlot) plays it slightly closer to the vest, and at least at this tasting, seemed to be the most backward and tannic of these wines, which surprised me. There is some creme de cassis fruit intermixed with lead pencil shavings and an almost truffle-like note, but the wine is backward and foreboding. A muscular wine, it needs 3-4 years of bottle age, but should certainly be another 20+-year wine.

    Bordeaux-like in its structure and character, with aromas of anise, currant, rose petal, cedar and blackberry, turning taut and firm on the palate. Full-bodied, with excellent balance, depth and dimension, ending with tight, ripe tannins. Best from 2010 through 2016. 1,700 cases made.

    Bought a bottle to try and was surprised. This turns out to be nice and soft cab. try it prior to decant as you might like it just the way it comes out of bottle.
