Winemaker's Notes:

The warm 2006 growing season, along with a light crop and small concentrated berries at B.R. Cohn Olive Hill Vineyard, yielded us one of our best Cabernets to date. This wine has much of the ripeness of 2005 with very pronounced aromas and flavors of plum, black currant, and cherry. As always, this exceptional vintage was fermented in small lots to ensure the character of each part of the Olive Hill Vineyard. This vintage was aged for 24 months in only the finest tight grain French oak. A bouquet of fine oak, anise and mint combine with supple tannin and a long finish to produce a well-balanced Cabernet that will age gracefully for years to come and drink well at your table now.
