Dark and gorgeously dense the 2006 Ark Cabernet Sauvignon is extravagant with aromas of creme de cassis, tobacco, licorice and fresh, clean earth. The rich aromatics are complimented by deep layers of concentrated blackberry and black currant flavors that mingle beautifully with mocha, espresso, and a touch of spice box. The wine expresses supple tannins and the considerable fruit characters follow beautifully through the long finish. This wine will drink superbly for two decades.
More tannin and earthiness are apparent in the 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon Ark Vineyard. Last year, this wine revealed considerable softness, but that has morphed into a more delineated, beautifully dense, full-bodied Cabernet with dazzling fragrance and glycerin in addition to an extravagant fruit character. It, too, should drink beautifully for 20 years.
Good deep red-ruby. Knockout claret-like aroma of currant, tobacco, mocha, licorice and loam. Sweet and lush, with lovely energy and a distinctly rocky mineral character contributing to the wine's suave impression. Finishes firmly tannic, bright and spicy, with terrific persistence. Jayson Woodbridge started picking his home vineyard on October 12, ultimately making five passes through the vines.
