Winemaker's Notes

In the glass, the 2006 Marinus exhibits a beautiful deep crimson color. Aromas express spicy red fruits accented by notes of dried herbs and subtle toasted oak. The flavors of black cherry and spice provide a delicious drinking experience even in its youth, though this vintage will age gracefully for several years to come.

Blend: 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc, 5% Petite Verdot

Style: Earthy & Spicy
The wine is a lovely deep purple color in the glass, and the nose exhibits a notes of red fruit, raspberries, cherries and blackberries along with some earthy elements of tobacco, leather and anise. The taste is very fruit forward, with flavors of ripe cherry and plum, transitioning to dry spices and cinnamon. The tannins are quite supple, leading to long, smooth finish with notes of dark chocolate and smoke, which is often characteristic of blends with Malbec.
