Long Meadow Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

88 points Wine Spectator: Though rustic and chewy, the mix of dried berry, black licorice, cedar and mineral flavors give this a solid core of flavors. Full-bodied and well-structured, ending with dry, cedary tannins. Drink now through 2020. (5/31/12) Unmistakably Cabernet Sauvignon from 'up the hill' at Long Meadow Ranch. The lovely, earthy aromas smell like the ranch on a warm autumn afternoon. There is plenty of vibrant, forward fruit (plum, black cherry, dried cranberries, blackberry cobbler) to provide a counterpoint and additional layers of interest. The pleasing entry is both structured and broad and yields to an integrated, balanced mid-palate in which all the flavors deepen and blend. The finish is characterized by lingering sweet fruit and a seamless, mouthwatering texture. This LMR Cabernet Sauvignon will surely complement a broad range of everyday and special dishes. 98% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2% Cabernet Franc. Alcohol 13.5%.

A wonderful cab. Aroma of dark fruits which carry over to he taste on the palate. Tannins are somewhat soft. A moderate finish. The freshness of this 2006 is very pleasing.
