Dark red color. Various aromas radiant from the glass—ripe black
cherry, plum, dried herbs, white pepper, roasted coffee and earth.
On first taste, juicy, well integrated flavors of oak and fruit. Cocoa
powder notes highlight this wine, which is seamless in its structure
from entry to finish.
"Old style Napa California Cab. Enjoy it. Dried flowers and currants on the nose. Full body, with velvety and chewy tannins. Structured and rich. Needs time. Leave it for three to four years. "
"The single non-90-point wine, the 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon, is excellent. Dark ruby/purple, with notes of chocolate, cassis, espresso roast, and some underbrush, the wine is attractive, rich, medium-bodied, and while tannic, not excessively so, as some 2006s have tended to be. This wine should drink well for 10-15 years.
