A strikingly elegant, pure and complex nose that is restrained and understated offers floral, red berry, spice and an herbal hint that merges seamlessly into concentrated and rich medium-bodied flavors that possess excellent mid-palate fat and superb length. It's rare to find a 2006 that has both richness and delineation all while retaining the fine balance that great wines have. This should be really impressive in 8 years or so, in fact, it's already impressive but there is more to come. *Outstanding*
Selleck is one of the first vineyards Josh Jensen planted in the limestone soils on the high slopes of Mount Harlan in the mid-1970s. As is typical of young vintages from Selleck, this '06 is shy when first poured, its flavors muted by firm mineral structure and brisk acidity. It gains depth with air, flavors of ripe cherry and fresh mint melding into an impressive structure. Built for the cellar, this will become more expressive and elegant in five to eight years.
Not quite up there with the ’05, but certainly better than the ’04, this wine shows softly ripe flavors of cherries, raspberries and red currants, with complexities of mocha, vanilla, bacon, pepper and sandalwood. Beautiful now and for the next 3–5 years.
