Minerals, mint, and berries in the nose. Full, powerful, polished, with wonderfully dense tannins. The finish is long, long, long. This is amazing, I love the freshness and length. Very classy and elegant, wonderful stuff. I am wow'd. Great length, it's muscular with wonderful definition. This will be even more of a dream in 2015.
The full-bodied 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon does not possess any of the hard, foreboding tannins found in some 2006 Cabernets, but rather, it displays a silky, velvety personality. Although not as nuanced or complex as the 2005, it is a brilliant wine offering generous levels of black currant fruit intermixed with graphite, scorched earth, and a hint of underlying smoke. It will be surprisingly delicious early in its life but capable of lasting two-plus decades. (RP) 94+
Good full ruby-red. Complex nose offers blackcurrant, raspberry, mocha, coffee and licorice; conveys a strong site character. Silky-sweet and creamy in the mouth, with dark fruit and bitter chocolate flavors given an almost magically light touch by high notes of minerals, mint and lavender. Quite subtle and juicy for a wine with nearly 15% alcohol. Finishes with very fine tannins and terrific lift and length. (ST)
Aging well, mature and softening, with a refined offering of anise, plum, loamy earth and cedary oak notes, this red is defined more by elegance and finesse than by richness or power. That graceful charm woos you. Drink now-2022. (JL, Web Only-2016)
