    Winemaker's Notes:

    Deep ruby color with hints of purple. Classic Cabernet aromas of rich red fruits, plum, tobacco, roasted coffee beans, and a touch of fresh mint. The aromas are echoed on the palate, with layers of fruit and spice pushing on and on. It's a full-bodied wine that has incredible length and purity of flavor—it really keeps you coming back for more. Pairs well with a wide range of foods from beef and pork to lamb, quail and other game birds, and cream-based sauces.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The dark ruby-colored 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon which contains 15% Merlot was aged for 13 months in 80% new French oak and 20% second use French oak before bottling without fining or filtration (as are all three of these wines). It offers an alluring bouquet of pain grille, spice box, cassis, and black currant. This is followed by an elegantly-styled Cabernet with silky tannin, 2-3 years of aging potential, excellent depth and concentration, plenty of savory fruit, and a pure finish. It will be at its best from 2010 to 2018.

    The Wine Advocate

    Good full red-ruby. Complex, aromatic nose melds blueberry, plum, mocha, graphite and tobacco, complicated by mint, menthol and fresh herbs. Sweet on entry, then juicy, tight and fine-grained, with lively harmonious acidity giving the dense fruit a youthfully clenched quality. But with its fresh acidity and ripe tannic spine, this wine is sexy already.
