Genevieve Janssens blends this sleek cabernet from Mondavi's To-Kalon Vineyard with small contributions from other Oakville bench sites. It's an impressive 2006, with curranty sweetness in the middle of the tannins that makes them feel rich and stony at once. It gains detail with air, the structure firm, massive and finely made. This is an elegant cabernet suited to five or six years of aging.
Beautifully crafted and aging exceptionally well, offering a tight core of dense currant, anise, cedar, mocha and cigar box notes, this is impressive, gaining depth, nuance and subtleties all sustained on a long, layered finish. Ends with ripe, chewy tannins.—2006 California Cabernet blind retrospective (December 2015). Drink now through 2022. 13,700 cases made. (JL Web-2016)
The 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon Oakville reveals more licorice, spice, box, cedar, black cherries, and black currants in its complex, moderately intense aromatics. Full-bodied with outstanding concentration and moderate tannin, it displays the potential to improve for a decade, and last for 15-20 years thereafter. (RP)
