"The 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon contains 15% Malbec in the blend. The wine was aged for 11 months in 50% new French and 50% one-year American barrels. Dark ruby/purple-colored, the nose offers up fragrant baking spices, black cherry, and black currant. This leads to a medium to full-bodied wine with an elegant personality, succulent fruit, a lush texture, and outstanding length. It will evolve for 1-2 years and offer prime drinking from 2010 to 2018."
