The 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon exhibits a similar color with a slight pinkish hue at the edge. The aromatics are more restrained and less complex than the 2005's, but the 2006 explodes in the mouth revealing dense creme de cassis flavors intermixed with licorice, smoke, and earth. The thickness, richness, and density in the mouth auger well for the future. While the 2006 may not hit the peaks of the 2005, it is still an impressive Cabernet Sauvignon to drink over the next 15 years.

Pure, elegant, sophisticated and balanced, with spicy currant, plum, wild berry and spicy, floral notes, this is rich and concentrated, yet elegant and refined, ending with touches of espresso, cedar and mocha.

Brings cassis, fennel and blackberry aromas. On the palate, precise, clean impressions of brilliant cassis, herb and finely textured tannins. This was one of my Top 25 wines in 2009.

Site Blog: dougwilder - the purely domestic wine blog 15.5% alcohol, 300 case production, the wine was decanted one hour + before tasting Aroma: graphite and blackberry with camphor, ripe black cherry and licorice. Palate: impressive structure with lush shadings of velvet-like black fruit and crushed, crisp berries showing excellent balance through the mid palate to a long finish. Impression: the oak is already beautifully integrated into the wine embracing it with great texture and nuance.

About This Producer


Ron and Anita Wornick purchased the last un-developed parcel from the original Meadowood development in 1995 and began the nearly decade-long process of clearing the rocks from what would eventually be their home and vineyard. The winery gets its name from a granite slab sculture that is the focal point of the compound.The first vines were planted in 1995 and the premiere release of the David Abreu-developed property is 2005. Wornick's background is in food science and his company was selected by the US military to produce the MRE (Meals, Ready to Eat) that revolutionized food delivery in the field. Additionally, over the last thirty years he and Anita have developed one of the most important contemporary craft collections in the world. The winemaking team is Aaron Pott, assisted by Roy Piper.
