2006 Sequoia Grove Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #1053558

92 points Wine Enthusuiast: "A lovely Cabernet, soft and voluptuous, and above all rich in flavor. Showcases ripe blackberries, black currants, chocolate and anise, leading to a dry, spicy finish. A beautiful, full-bodied wine to drink now with elaborate fare." (07/10) Deep red-black in color with intense notes of blackberry and a creamy cinnamony component with underlying layers of cedar, black pepper and pencil lead. The wine is extremely well-balanced, with rich flavors and fine-grained tannins. The dark fruit finish goes on and on, seamlessly intertwining with the acid and tannin structure.

I am sooooo tired of these high alcoholic, no acid, jammy cabernets that seem to have become the norm in Napa Valley and other areas of the North Coast, it was an enormous surprise and joy to taste and consume the incredibly charming, impeccably balanced Sequoia Grove 2006 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, recently. True to the softer nature of the 2006 vintage, this Gem emphasizes currants, blackberry, to plumy fruit with notes of white pepper to licorice spiciness both in its opulent nose and across its broad, lush, viscous palate impressions. Again, the emphasis, here, is on soft, round, complex fruit, with no attempt to hide it under a ton of American oak. I like this wine a lot for its current drinkablity, yet there is enough structure and depth of character to allow it to improve and get better over the next three to six years. In spite of this, Anderson has informed me that this will be one of our house reds for the month. Enjoy! 14.2% ABV (Jim Barr)
Drink from 2010 to 2016
