Producer Notes

Located high above Lake Hennessy, the vineyards which supply this outstanding expression of Napa's bounty are some of the few influenced by the moderating influence of a relatively large body of water. At 1,500-feet, the high altitude of the Pritchard Hill area also serves to produce low yields of premium grapes that provide the dense, concentrated, black fruit aspect of this enormously complex...

Issue Issue 144

($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.

Drink Dates 2009-2029

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.

Drink Dates 2010-2020

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.

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
