This estate bottling is superbly rich in cassis and cedar, and while the tannins are thick, they are sweet and intricate. Only the darkest, most extracted lots from our estate vineyards are used in making this wine. Deep garnet in color, this supple treat displays aromas of black cherry candy, cola, and cedar. Flavors of vanilla and sarsaparilla are interwoven with notes of white pepper and cassis. The 2006 Estate is dense and brooding with a luscious, slightly sweet finish that lingers on.
