2006 was an excellent vintage in Agrelo. A cool winter with plenty of snow fall in the Andes was followed by a warm spring, resulting in excellent and even fruit set. Summer was characterized by warm days and slightly cooler than usual nights – excellent ripening conditions. Finally, little rainfall from late February to the end of harvest led to an outstanding vintage.
A deep purplish color, the Decero Cabernet Sauvignon has a pretty nose, with notable Cassis and red fruit character. It displays pure, bright fruits on the palate, with a persistent finish. The elegance and balance of the wine are its signature assets.
"Quite ripe, with a beam of raspberry and boysenberry fruit, but it stays focused, with alluring spice, currant, toast and black tea notes stretching out the juicy finish. Drinkn now through 2010."
"The 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon Remolinos Vineyard is deep crimson-colored with an alluring bouquet of cedar, cinnamon, allspice, cassis, and black currant. Supple and elegant on the palate, it has excellent depth, grip, and a lingering finish. It too will provide pleasure over the next six years. Quietly, Petit Verdot has become a new darling of serious wine growers and aficionados because in regions where it ripens most of the time, it can be something quite spectacular. Once strictly a blending grape, more and more we will see it bottled on its own merits."
