Winemaker's Notes:

The 2006 Dollarhide, at this young age, is a little closed up and tightly wound right now. After about 30 minutes in the glass, the wine begins to open up and show its fine pedigree. The wine is quite concentrated with black cherry and currant fruit notes. There is also a nice spiciness with a little white pepper, anise and even some spearmint. The tannins are big and well integrated which will give this wine excellent holding power over the next 15 to 20 years.
