Hundred Acre ARK Cabernet Sauvignon 2006
More tannin and earthiness are apparent in the 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon Ark Vineyard. Last year, this wine revealed considerable softness, but that has morphed into a more delineated, beautifully dense, full-bodied Cabernet with dazzling fragrance and glycerin in addition to an extravagant fruit character. It, too, should drink beautifully for 20 years.
Firm, ripe and structured, displaying a medley of rich currant, black cherry and wild berry fruit, with touches of mineral and sage and hints of anise and tobacco. Firms up on the finish, yet there's a complex push of Cabernet fruit and a pleasant mocha oak flavor that adds a nice dimension. Best from 2010 through 2017.
