The deep ruby/purple-tinged 2006 The Maiden reveals notes of coffee damp earth black currants and smoky black cherries. In keeping with the vintage character it is slightly more tannic angular and austere than the 2005. While it will not be as precocious in its youth as that wine the 2006 should age effortlessly for 15 or more years.

Tightly wound firm and concentrated with a chewy core of dried currant cedar anise and mineral yet for all its austerity there's a wonderful beam of ripe dark fruit that gains depth nuance and length. Impressive for its structure and depth. Best from 2010 through 2017. 1319 cases made. -JL

High-pitched aromas of black cherry licorice violet and menthol. Thicker than the Bond Matriarch offering from the same winemaking team but impressively vibrant for all its sweetness. Complex flavors of blackberry raspberry licorice tobacco smoke and iron are nicely framed by substantial firm-edged tannins.
