Cassis, graphite, currant, blackberry and toasty oak flavors and aromas abound in this elegant, seamless and lush offering. The flavors float on the palate like velvet and the mild fruit tannins on the finish promise some extended aging potential. While hard to resist drinking now, this wine from a vintage of lush early maturing wines should last 5-8 years.
"The dense ruby/purple-tinged 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon reveals classic aromas of creme de cassis, licorice, earth, and spice box in addition to chewy, rich, concentrated flavors, moderate, sweet tannin, and a long, heady finish. If past renditions are any indication, this spicy, hardy Cabernet Sauvignon should age effortlessly for 15 or more years.
