A beautiful Cab, lush, ripe and fat, yet always maintains elegant balance. Made from a blend of St. Helena and Oakville fruit, the wine shows forward flavors of cassis, cherries, chocolate and cedar, with notes of violets and minerals. Really classy, and should develop over the next six years.
Not quite up to the wonderful 2005. A bit too fruity and oaky, flooding the mouth with blackberries, cherries, currants, chocolate and sweet caramelized wood, but lacking a certain depth and complexity. What a difference a vintage can make.
