The wine was 100% barrel fermented and aged for 12 months in 70% new oak and 30% one year old oak. 65% of the oak was American and 35% was French. The wine has a deep maroon red color. The varietal nose is an intense display of wild blackcurrant and dark cherry, intermingled with freshly ground cinnamon, crème brulee and a fresh leafy lift. The palate is vibrant with sweet fruit, developing into a fleshy, creamy mid palate. Fine savoury tannins built into the wine give it structure and persistence with a raw silk feel. The wine is drinking well now and will cellar for many years.

Wine AdvocateThe 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon was 100% barrel-fermented and aged for 12 months in 75% new oak, 80% American, 20% French. Opaque purple-colored, it exhibits a fragrant, expressive perfume of toasty oak, vanilla, spice box, black currant, and blackberry liqueur. This is followed by a racy Cabernet, slightly lean, with intense black fruit flavors, good depth and concentration, and enough structure to support 8-10 years of development in the cellar.
