Winemaker's Notes:

Rich and concentrated, the 2006 Oroppas opens with aromas of black plum, vanilla, brown sugar and cinnamon. On the palate, flavors of black currant, roasted coffee and bittersweet chocolate are wrapped in velvety tannins. Notes of dark chocolate and raspberry jam lead to a long finish. A small amount of Cabernet Franc and Petite Verdot were added to the blend to enhance the structure and mid-palate weight. Each lot was aged separately in 75 percent new French oak barrels for nineteen months, and then blended together before bottling
