    Winemaker's Notes:

    The 2006 displays a complex nose bright cherry and redcurrant fruits, with deeper layers of sage, bay leaf and fragrant spice. An instant explosion of thick, fleshy tannins provide excellent weight and density to the mid-palate and carry on to a lush and lingering finish.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2006 Red is a blend of Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, and Petit Verdot aged in 73% new oak for 33 months. This loaded effort delivers a sexy concoction of toasty oak, exotic spices, and assorted black fruits that titillates the nose. Deftly combining power and elegance, it should see its 20th birthday in peak form.

    The Wine Advocate

    A substantial Bordeaux blend that trips into the palate on cat’s feet—a delicate touch that gradually gains mass and dimension. It’s compact and balanced, with a core of red fruit, a floral top note, and complex layers of mineral and metal. Give it time to open up, and see how the spicy fruit seamlessly mingles with satiny tannins; it scales up and out without being blocky or tiring.

    Full, bright red. Rich, warm aromas of plum, cherry, redcurrant, tobacco, cocoa powder and minerals. Plump, broad, rich and aromatic in the mouth; really spreads out to coat the palate. At once pliant and focused, with impressive fruit intensity. Finishes broad and very long, with a fine dusting of tannins.
