The 2006 growing season was marked by weather extremes, with near record rainfallduring the early spring and record high temperatures in the early and mid-summer. Although a challenging season weather-wise, exceptional sites including the warmer parts of the Horse Heaven Hills and Wahluke Slope saw early ripening and bold tannins from the high temperatures. In the cooler growing areas later ripening prompted good color, pronounced fruit flavors and softer tannins in reds.
Top 100 Value of the Year and Best Buy This has satisfying savory aromas of tree bark, tobacco and sundried tomato to complement the dark, plumy fruit. There's enough of a red tinge to that fruit to give the wine freshness and energy. A steal of a cab and a great choice for grilled short ribs.
