2006 Oak Knoll Cabernet Sauvignon
Lot 75 2006 Oak Knoll Cabernet
On the nose, subtle purple fruits and classic Napa Valley cassis. The wine is black with a purple rim. Elegant yet powerfully structured on the palate, with good minerality and integrated tannins. While tightly wound, the fruit is just beginning to peek through, so I don't think this wine will take a year to break through like Lot 35—especially given its extra point of alcohol. All in all, this is one hell of a Cabernet that will age beautifully. I highly recommend laying this wine down.
Style: Full, Bold
