Mission Briefing

Codename:

Ebullient Uncle Daryl

Today’s wine is the one of the final vintages of this series of wines - and boy, is it a doozy! Made exclusively from reserve barrels select lots of reserve fruit, today’s Geyser Peak Winery 2006 Bin 10 Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is an extraordinary, delicious, balanced and very elegant wine that is a true delight to imbibe - and to discuss.

The Bin series was created by Aussie winemaker Daryl Groom and then lovingly transitioned to winemaker Ondine Chattan, who took the series and made magic with it.

While this wine tastes incredible upon opening, please allow it to breathe. The longer you decant or swirl, the more character and flavor it reveals. Tannins become softer and more evenly distributed across the palate. Drink now, and enjoy for the next few years.

Tasting Profile

Look:

Dark, vivid ruby, with a near perfect diffusion from core to edge.

Smell:

Big and robust, with stewed plum and black currant laid atop a foundation of fresh forest floor, espresso bean, black pepper, and slight notes of caramel.

Taste:

Bold and powerful, yet refined and beautifully balanced, this wine is a fantastic blend of fruit, earth, and spice. Flavors of a blackberry and black cherry compote meld with aged leather, fresh blackberry bramble, cocoa powder, mocha, and just a hint of India black tea.

Finish:

Concentrated and lush, with the dark fruit lingering and gently drying the front of the palate. This fruit eventually leads to hints of caramel and espresso bean, with just a touch of pomegranate black tea, at the finish.

Pairing:

We would recommend a crispy roasted pork belly, marinated in Asian spices, served alongside fresh buttered green beans.
