Good dark red with ruby highlights. Complex, vibrant aromas of blackcurrant, graphite, pipe tobacco and minerals. Lush, fine-grained and superconcentrated; velvety in texture despite possessing fruit of steel. Much more energy here than the 2007 is showing today. Wonderfully expansive on the subtle, extremely long back end, which features major mellow tannins and superb rising fruit. A great success for this late-bottled cabernet style.

Finally in the bottle, the 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon Deep Time is the only wine from that vintage I tasted. Most of these wines spend 38-40 months in barrel and as a result seem to be remarkably elegant and complex without showing any new oak. This cuvee is a selection from Kayli Morgan that has been aged longer. Notes of spice box, white chocolate, espresso and sweet black cherries and black currants tumble from the glass of this full-bodied, round, generously endowed wine that has no hard edges. It should continue to drink well for another 12-15+ years.
