($325) Bright medium ruby. Exotic aromas of black cherry, licorice, menthol and maple syrup, but with the wine's fruit currently suppressed by sheer superripeness. Then dense, thick and chocolatey in the mouth, with a port-like roasted quality carrying through this large-scaled wine. Sweet but not exactly fruity owing to its extreme ripeness. Finishes with serious, slightly rough tannins. Can't match the 2007 for energy. Fans of sheer size will rate this higher than I have. Incidentally, Philippe Melka vinified this wine and Mark Aubert bottled it; Aubert's first vinification here was 2007.

Made in a full-bodied, more masculine style, the 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon offers more evolved aromas of high class, unsmoked cigar tobacco, blackberries, black currants, earth, and underbrush. It is a deep, dense, ruggedly constructed Cabernet revealing powerful tannins in the finish. While outstanding, it is dwarfed by the monumental quality of the 2007.

Delightfully complex, elegant, rich and subtle, with a core of ripe, spicy currant, black cherry and plum that's pure and focused, supple and juicy, with an amazing finish that reverberates with flavor. Shows great balance, concentration and persistence.
