Good deep ruby-red. Nose dominated by cassis, mocha and nutty oak. Broad, lush and sweet; more red than black in its fruit character than this producer's other 2006s, with the nutty oak component carrying through. Pliant in mouth feel and nicely sweet on the palate-coating finish, which features rather soft tannins. I'd enjoy this wine in the near term.

There are 2200 cases of the 2006 Red Wine, a blend of 77% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Cabernet Franc, 10% Merlot, and the balance Petit Verdot and Malbec. While not at the quality level of the top wines, it is a fine introduction to the house style at a very fair price. Dark ruby-colored, it displays a bouquet of cigar box, pencil lead, violets, black currant, and a hint of licorice. Medium to full-bodied, intensely fruited, and with enough structure to evolve for 2-3 years, this lengthy effort will drink well from 2011 to 2018.

Very ripe and generous. Not a big wine, but brims with plum, currant, black olive, cedar and roasted meat flavors, all playing against crisp tannins and lingering on the tight finish. Needs time in the cellar in order to open and flourish.

Blackberry and chocolate notes. Integrated fruit and tannins. Really good wine and well priced if you get it at the list price.

A beautiful deep dark ruby red color, nose of huge berries and cassis, with an absolutely wonderful soft tannins well integrated, finish lasts for more than one minute. A stunning wine for the money.
