Wine Review: This opaque and very dark purple colored Cab was may favorite from a flight of Washington Cabs that I recently covered. It opens with a moderate blueberry bouquet with a hint of oak detected as well. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, nicely balanced, and smooth. The flavor profile is black raspberry with gentle infused oak and a dash of black pepper. The finish is dry and its dusty oak tannins build up and are nicely prolonged. I thought this Cab would be ideal with a cowboy ribeye. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: The 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon is rich, smooth and concentrated, with layers of black cherry, dark fruit, and mocha with spicy tones of mineral and earth. The finish is amazingly long and detailed, with supple and seamless tannins. This wine is a true mix of very ripe fruit, elegance and finesse. The wine aged 21 months in 55% new French oak barrels. — Jean-François Pellet, Winemaker
