2006 V Madrone Cabernet Sauvignon 1.5L
The 2006 V Madrone Cabernet Sauvignon is a beautiful, complete wine. From the initial aromas of black cherry, allspice and chocolate, to the extremely long lasting finish, this is a Cabernet worthy of the hallowed site on which it is grown. The wine is shiny with dark plum, blackberries and scarlet on the rim. On the nose, there is an explosion of cedar, cinnamon, macerated dark cherries, black truffle with roast beef, apple pie, sour cherry, dill and roses. On the palate there is a soft entrance, evolving on a fresh mid-palate with fine tannins and touches of cherry, red currant and graphite.
