Aromas of cassis, raspberry, perfume and vanilla are interwoven with tobacco, cedar and cocoa. On the palate the wine is dense and concentrated with a finish that is long and complex. This wine will age well for a decade and beyond. Decant this wine in its youth, it will reach a nice level of complexity 8-10 years from vintage, and with proper cellaring it will continue to develop over the next 10+ years.
- Vineyard Notes
Sourced from our Profile Estate Vineyard along with a few exceptional lots from other top Napa Valley vineyards.
- From Wine Enthusiast: "Profile has been an important,
… but sometimes overlooked, member of the Napa Valley pantheon for many years, and their ’06 shows why. It’s a rich, complex and smooth wine. Packed with blackberry, cassis and smoky, new oak flavors, it shows a firm structure of tannins and acidity. Beautiful now with a grilled steak, and should age well for at least a decade.” —Steve Heimoff [94 POINTS]
- From RobertParker.com: "The 2006 Profile is a beauty.
The sweet, ripe tannins nicely frame this large-scaled, full-bodied wine. Its opaque ruby/purple color is followed by a fragrant bouquet of tobacco leaf, spice box, white chocolate, black currants, and plums. Deep, full-bodied, expansive, and savory, it will be even better after several more years of bottle age, and should easily last for two decades or more.” —Robert Parker, Jr. [90 POINTS]
