This is one of my favorite mid-tier cabs, although the price of later vintages has risen. One of the 2006 gems that got overlooked compared to 2005 and 2007. Nose of blackcurrants, roasted almonds and a hint of coffee. Very well integrated and still full bodied with a good finish of ripe tannins. The acidity and tannins have definitely softened since I had this wine almost a year ago. If you like young fruit and good structure (as do I) then drink this wine now while it lasts. If you like softer, more elegant wines, this one is just about there. You can drink now or give it another year.
