I had a bottle of this in a 2005 during a dinner at a casino restaurant in Coos Bay, Oregon. It was so good I drank 3 glasses. I had it with a great Fillet. I bought a bottle of it and the second was as good as the original. I don't know what these people did to the 2006, but I certainly wont waste any more money on this 2006 wine. If I get thirsty I'll just get a glass of water.
