Winemaker's Notes:

The 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon is big and lush with huge gobs of fruit in the aroma and flavor. The texture of the wine is soft and supple, typical of Cabernet Sauvignons grown in our area of the Oakville AVA. Patience during bottle aging will reward the "steward" with an outstanding bottle over the next 10 to 15 years.

Try this Cabernet with a lamb loin marinated in olive oil and garden herbs with lemon mashed Yukon Gold potatoes and Swiss chard.
