La Muse

2006

Vintage

The 2006 vintage was another challenging yet promising one. Cool and wet spring weather then warm summer heat was followed by more moisture in July. Cool weather in mid-August meant slower, even ripening. Harvest began later than usual, and we got dark grape clusters and a dark color in the juice. A difficult vintage, but the wine is showing beautifully. Harvest took place September 18th through October 14th. – Pierre Seillan, Vigneron

Notes

This wine possesses a superb deep color and a nose of black cherries. The initial impressions are very rich and powerful. The tannins coat the inside of the mouth with a lasting impression. The oak is well-integrated and elegant from start to finish.

It is capable of saturating the palate with full body in addition to revealing more tannin, structure and foresty, meaty, animal-like notes as well as a distinctive truffle-like component. Drink it over the next 15-20 years.
