Filled with floral, herbal, black raspberry, coffee and brown sugar aromas.
If Six Was Nine is World's End take on a Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon varietal wine. However, as they come from Bordeaux they find it difficult to live with just one variety! So they blend in a little Merlot to help the middle palate and Cabernet Franc to provide just that extra bit of lift.
Blend: 94% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Merlot.
"A brooding Cabernet full of green and black olive, velvety cassis and cinnamon spice, this is ready to enjoy now. A juicy red, it has resolved tannins and a lingering taste of tobacco. Power and finesse are here, along with smoky minerality and savory fruit. "
"The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon If Six Was Nine is another excellent effort made from 94% Cabernet Sauvignon and 6% Merlot. It boasts a dense ruby/purple color as well as a big, sweet perfume of licorice, cedar and black currants. Medium to full-bodied, rich and textured with graphite and charcoal making an appearance in the flavors, this full throttle, impressive Cabernet can be drunk now and over the next 15 years."
