The appearance is opaque dark red with ruby hues. The 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon shows aromas of dark cherry, blackberry syrup, bruleed sugar and aromatic cedar. The integration of oak adds hints of walnut oil, cinnamon and clove. Powerful, yet elegantly balanced, the flavors of blueberry, black currant, mint, cedar, and full cherry-berry notes lead into a fleshy mid-palate, over a bed of resolved tannins. This wine is full-flavored from start to finish, with a very long lingering fruitfulness dusted with cocoa.
"This is a powerful, gutsy Cabernet, currently lacking finesse. It’s young, dry and brash, with sticky tannins and unmelded flavors and textures. The blackberry, cherry and oak flavors are sweet and delicious. Seems best now and soon, although it could be a sleeper."
