The 2006 Briarcrest marries suave, complex structure with elegant fruit and stellar
varietal appeal, making it as much a cellar selection as a natural fit for today's table.
Inky ruby red in color, on the nose it pairs complex aromas of cassis, blackberry
essence, licorice, and lavender with powerful notes of cedar and brown spice.
On the palate, the wine delivers powerfully rich black fruit flavors and supple,
structured tannins before a lengthy finish, which wraps up with velvety notes of
dark chocolate, espresso, and toast.
This intensely elegant, full-bodied Cabernet calls for rich meats like steak, lamb,
and other robust fare.
Smooth & Supple
Excellent cabernet Sauvignon. Should have ordered more, no longer available to shio in my area. I'll have to buy the old fashioned way, lovely balance, full body, acidic, smooth tannins. Well rounded.
Big & Bold
good tannin structure. not very fruit forward
