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
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.
10% Cabernet Franc
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.
