"The 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon (70%) – Carmenere (30%) Antu Ninquen was aged in 50% new French and American oak for 15 months. Purple-colored, it has an enticing aromatic array of pain grille, pencil lead, spice box, black currant, and blueberry. On the palate, this already complex effort has layers of fruit, savory flavors, excellent balance, and enough structure to evolve for 1-2 years. Drink this lengthy wine from 2010 to 2016.
