Winemaker Peter Framus Notes
Except for a lengthy heat wave in July, 2006 was a long, relatively cool growing season that started late and extended well into October. As our vines continue to mature, with each new vintage we notice an increased level of complexity, roundness, and depth of flavor. We are beginning to identify the signature of our vineyard. Our Cabernet is dark, essentially opaque, with great concentration of color, tannin, and flavor. The wine is brooding with a meaty component, but eventually reveals its classic aromas of cassis, allspice, bay, vanilla, and blackberry. There is tremendous depth and concentration equal to that found in any other region of California. The expansive mouth with its rich dark fruit and plenty of tannin will allow this win ...more... e to age for a very long time.
