The 2006 Velvet Glove is the first vintage ever made and is deep garnet-black in color with an alluring meaty and gamey nose accented by smoky bacon, a bit of brine and iron ore, some dried plums and black berry preserves and notes of figs and eucalyptus. Full-bodied and crisp, it is richly concentrated with coffee and raisin flavors, has medium levels of velvety tannins and excellent length on the finish. I found the nose to be showing just a little muted, so give 1-2 years and drink to 2024+.

Rich, ripe and harmoniously balanced, this is dense with blackberry, plum, licorice, cream and spice flavors that don't quit as the finish sails on and on. Has tremendous presence, yet remains supple through the expressive finish. 3,352 cases made.

Blackberry, boysenberry, cream, leather, and rich dark chocolate all melding together seamlessly. Not overwhelming at all with soft tannins and nice rounded feel in the mouth. The finish goes on forever.
