I found this wine at a small beer and wine shop, not too far from home. I decided to buy 6 bottles, and boy am I glad I did. This wine is great!! I know that the 2006 has great reviews but, I don't understand how this fell short. The nose tells you right off the bat what you are in for. The tannins are bold but, still smooth. Flavors of pepper, cedar, plum, blackberry, and tobacco. The finish is long, and amazing! Try this wine!!
