    Winemaker's Notes:

    79% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Malbec, 6% Petit Verdot

    Bright aromas of boysenberry and cassis combine with mulled spice, orange peel, and cassia bark. The palate is dense, complex and fruitful. Wild blueberry and blackberry mingle with clove and black tea spice, which are seamlessly brought together with integrated tannins that sustain a long and luxurious finish.

    Critical Acclaim:

    This '06 continues the winery's recent successes in Cabernet. It’s a lush, opulent wine. In its youth the smoky oak stars, along with waves of blackberries, black currants, plums and a spicy, meaty note suggesting bacon. Beautiful now, although tight in tannins, it should develop bottle aromatics and complexities for at least the next six years.

    The 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon (79% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Malbec, and 6% Petit Verdot) is a refined, gracious, elegant effort displaying loads of black and red currants intermixed with licorice, mountain flora, and underbrush characteristics. Medium to full-bodied with superb concentration, sweet tannin (especially for a 2006 mountain wine), and good acidity as well as purity, this terrific wine has a Bordeaux-like weight along with the beautiful ripeness and purity of a Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. Give it 2-3 years of cellaring, and drink it over the following two decades.

    Excellent color; purple to the rim. Rich cherry-chocolate scents with notes of oak and dark honey. Compact and crisp with fruit flavors of cherry and blackberry. Youthful, promising cherry-chocolate finish accented by oak.
