The 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon opens with vibrant red fruit, cherry-cola and hint of spice. Flavors of plum and forest berries fill out the palate, contributing a nice acidity that holds through the lingering finish. With smooth tannins and a balanced profile, this wine pairs well with hearty pastas, aged cheddar or grilled lamb. Century Cellars wines are crafted to reflect the long history and collective knowledge of BV's winemaking team in a wine that is accessible and enjoyable. This is achieved through traditional winemaking techniques with a focus on retaining the liveliness of the inherent berry flavors balanced with a subtle oak influence for nuances of vanilla and spice with good mid-palate structure.
