Profile has been an important but sometimes overlooked member of the Napa Valley pantheon for many years and their '06 shows why. It's a rich complex and smooth wine.

It's a rich complex and smooth wine. Packed with blackberry cassis and smoky new oak flavors it shows a firm structure of tannins and acidity. Beautiful now with a grilled steak and should age well for at least a decade. S.H.

The sweet ripe tannins nicely frame this large-scaled full-bodied wine. Its opaque ruby/purple color is followed by a fragrant bouquet of tobacco leaf spice box white chocolate black currants and plums. Deep full-bodied expansive and savory it will be even better after several more years of bottle age and should easily last for two decades or more.

Very dark and black at a core that ever-so-slightly lightens towards the rim. The nose of this cabernet blend puts forth aromas of raspberry plum coffee dark chocolate wet rocks and a touch of French oak. The first taste makes it clear that this wine is far from shy as it is very big in the mouth with layers of complexity. Red and black fruits black pepper baking spices and a striking minerality. While it is still quite young it shows a load of potential; the longer it sits in the glass the more the flavors and aromas present themselves. Very nice!
