Along the same lines, the 2006 Estate Cuvee gives up big, layered and ripe aromas of assorted dark fruits, toasted spice, roasted herbs and licorice in a full-bodied, exuberant and decadent package. A blend of Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Petit Verdot, it’s still youthful and lively, yet has a rounded, approachable feel that just begs to be drunk. While I’m sure it will still be superb in another decade, I’d lean toward drinking it over the coming 5-7 years or so. (JD)
Opaque ruby. Deep, smoky aromas of blackcurrant, cherry-cola, black pepper, vanilla, tobacco and smoked meat. Broad, chewy red and dark berry flavors gain sweetness with air while picking up strong, chewy tannins. Finishes long and impressively sappy. The 2005, which I retasted next to this, is more brooding and will need more patience. (JR)
A touch rustic, but in a pleasing way, with gravelly mineral, pebble, pepper and crushed wild berry flavors that are intense and firm, yet the fruity flavors push through on the finish. (JL)
