The broodingly tannic backward 2006 is remarkably concentrated pure and deep. It is an amazing tour de force in winemaking but like nearly all the Perse 2006s it is a massively built vin de garde with no compromises meant for serious connoisseurs and long-term cellaring. Forget it for 7-8 years and drink it over the following 25-30.

Good bright ruby-red. Superripe aromas of blackberry, licorice and violet. Lush on entry, then large-scaled, tactile and rich, conveying an impression of fullness without heaviness. A distinctly muscular style of merlot... Good bright ruby-red. Superripe aromas of blackberry, licorice and violet. Lush on entry, then large-scaled, tactile and rich, conveying an impression of fullness without heaviness. A distinctly muscular style of merlot with a powerful structure, but here the tannins are thoroughly ripe and the back end boasts terrific aromatic persistence. Very impressive.
