2006 V Madrone Cabernet Sauvignon
The V Madrone 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon is a beautiful, complex wine with initial aromas of black cherry, allspice and chocolate followed by an extremely long-lasting finish. It possesses a firm core of hillside fruit tannins that soften upon aeration. This wine was aged for over 22 months in spicy and subtle French oak (90%) and the more vibrant and slightly edgier American oak (10%). The 2006 vintage will improve in the bottle for a decade or more and live a long and healthy life until consumed for occasions both grand and humble.
