This 2006 was unusually good-I thought it was very good shape for the age. The fruit was intact and not showing any real bad signs of aging. It was smooth and flavorful. The 2006 Private Selection Cabernet Sauvignon has been blended with Syrah and small amounts of Cabernet Franc and Petite Sirah.
Note: Petite Sirah, is a descendant of Peloursin and Syrah and is similar to Shiraz, but even more full bodied and tannic because of the smaller, thicker skinned grapes used.
