Flavor Profile

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.

  • From The Wine Advocate: "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]
