The 2006 Elix shows a deep purple color, with
aromas of dark plum, blackberry and leather, as well as unique mineral
notes derived from the licorella slate of our vineyards. The palate is
well balanced, with good texture indicative of mature tannins, and a
smooth finish. We recommend decanting this wine 30 to 60 minutes
prior to drinking.
"Bright and juicy, this supple red offers berry, tart cherry, garrigue and mineral notes that remain focused and intense through the long finish. Vivid and intense. Drink now through 2014. 750 cases made."
"Herbal notes give an extra dimension of freshness to this potent red, formidable in concentration. It is almost unctuous in texture, while its sweet red fruit lasts with a pleasant, juicy character."
Wine & Spirits
"Inky purple color. Sexy aromas of cherry-vanilla, blackberry and oak spices, with a subtle mineral underpinning. Round and gently sweet in the mouth, offering brighter red berry character and repeating oak spices. Velvety tannins gain strength on the finish but don't distract from the lush fruit. Drink this fruit bomb in the near term."
