The 2006 vintage of Vinifera Vineyards "Vitis" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon exhibits notes of white chocolate, bay leaf, tobacco and sweet tannins combined with fresh blue and black fruits. This wine is incredibly rich and multilayered and has a finish that stays on the palate for several minutes. On the nose, this wine tells a story of Rutherford Dust, and intensity not found in anything at this price point.
"Here’s a young, vital, impressive 100% Cabernet. It’s dry, full-bodied and rich in classic flavors of blackberries, black currants, graphite and minerals, wrapped into silky tannins. Superb oak integration lends notes of vanilla and sandalwood. Just gorgeous in the mouth, filled with class and elegance. Now–2014, at least. "

A full-bodied, fruity wine. This wine was not as dry to me as its description. It was a little sweet and not as heavy as some cabs, but it was still very nice. A good wine to buy again!
