Winemaker's Notes:

The 2006 Arcus Estate opens with intense floral and fruit aromas of violet and rose petal, fresh black cherry and red currant. The palate is generous, confectionary and concentrated with notes of black cherries and raspberries, star anise and mulling spices. Saturated with fruit on the palate, this wine shows great depth and succulence with plush, integrated tannins and persisting notes of fl oral spice and fresh berries.

Expressive and concentrated, the 2006 Arcus Estate is open and vibrant now, however may improve with proper cellaring over the next 3 to 8 years.
