Showing the usual balance and harmony of this bottling which is made from the five Bordeaux varieties the '06 nonetheless lacks a bit of the richness of other vintages.

Showing the usual balance and harmony of this bottling which is made from the five Bordeaux varieties the '06 nonetheless lacks a bit of the richness of other vintages. It's beautifully clean and dry with sound currant blackberry herb tea and cedar flavors but is missing a certain fatness in the middle. Best now-2012

The 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon Cinq Cepages (in this vintage truly a Cabernet Sauvignon rather than a proprietary red as it is a blend of 83% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Merlot Malbec Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot)... The 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon Cinq Cepages (in this vintage truly a Cabernet Sauvignon rather than a proprietary red as it is a blend of 83% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Merlot Malbec Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot) possesses soft seductive notes of cedarwood roasted herbs licorice red and black currants and dusty loamy soil undertones. Medium to full-bodied and silky-textured it can be enjoyed in its youth or cellared for a decade.

Dense purple core with a medium ruby rim. Bordeaux-like aromas display currant cherry anise cedar and soil. On the palate this is full bodied with tannins that build from start to finish in the mouth. Black currant... Dense purple core with a medium ruby rim. Bordeaux-like aromas display currant cherry anise cedar and soil. On the palate this is full bodied with tannins that build from start to finish in the mouth. Black currant flavors are showcases with a hint of new oak that should dissipate nicely over time. Well balanced this should age very well over the next decade or so.
