Wine Review: This is an awesome wine. It is almost pitch black and opens with a very inviting black cherry bouquet with a hint of spice. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, very well balanced, and ultra silky. The flavor profile is a delicious black cherry with notes of blueberry. The finish is dry and its moderate well managed tannins sail on for quite some time. Our party felt this wine was fantastic. It was a perfect match with my NY strip steak at Grill 23 in Boston. Enjoy – Ken
Winemaker Notes: The 2006 vintage has produced some blockbusters. The Cabernet Sauvignon which we have bottled as 2006 Claret (100% Cabernet) rivals the stellar 2001 vintage, thoroughly ripe, intensely extracted and evenly balanced.
