2006 Cabernet Sauvignon
California: Napa Valley: St. Helena
Harlan Estates crafts some of the most sought-after - and most expensive wines in this country. Their Napa Valley estate Cabernet Sauvignon fetches $250 a bottle. Next door to Harlan sits the tiny hidden gem Palladian Estate Winery, where winemaker David Mahafey crafts some of our favorite Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon.
David Mahafey, who will personally hand sign all of your bottles of today’s wine, has outdone himself with today’s 2006 Palladian Estate Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley. This wine is impeccably balanced, delicious and very elegant. Well-integrated tannins, a supple mouth feel and wonderful aromatics make for a fantastic drinking experience overall. Take that, Harlan!
Decant this elegant wine for optimal results - or swirl and sample to see how the wine improves with each spin.
Deep ruby at the core with fine purple edging.
Blackberry and plum compote, with follow-on notes of braised mission fig, dusty briar patch, subtle pine resin, bakers chocolate, sweet tobacco and mollasses.
Dark, rich flavors that almost perfectly mimic the lush nose. In addition to those flavors, dried violets, black cherry juice and subtle dried fall leaves round out the palate.
Plush and elegant, with dark fruit that sustains for a very long time.
Enjoy this elegant and delicious wine with a beef stroganoff or a wild mushroom risotto.
