The 2006 Futo (75% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Cabernet Franc Merlot and Petit Verdot) exhibits a deep ruby/blue/purple color a flawless integration of tannin acidity wood and alcohol and gorgeous opulence. While Futo is situated on western hillsides overlooking Oakville it displays a style that has more in common with the purity and elegance found in Screaming Eagle which is a few miles to the east on the valley floor. This beautiful 2006 is a resounding success for this vintage which had some issues with rustic tannins. It should drink well for 15+ years.

Dense and broad but sappy with lovely lift to the lush flavors of blueberry brown spices and tobacco. An outsized opulent Napa Valley red with just enough acidity to keep it fresh. In fact I find this less roasted than the 2005 release. Finishes with huge dusty building tannins and excellent length.
