DOMINUS ESTATE 2006 (2)

Napa Valley.
2 x scuffed labels

Very deep garnet-purple colour. A wonderfully perfumed nose of violets, crushed blackberries, black cherries, mace and cloves leading into some smoked meat and mocha aromas with swirling. Very structured on the palate with high acidity, a medium to high level of fine tannins and a full body providing plenty of flesh in the mid-palate. Very long layered finish. WA 96

JOSEPH PHELPS VINEYARDS INSIGNIA PROPRIETARY RED WINE 2006 (2)

Napa Valley.
u. 2 x bn. 2 x wrinkled labels

The 2006 Insignia possesses a deep ruby/purple color as well as copious amounts of cassis, but has not yet developed secondary nuances. It remains a big, full-throttle, full-bodied Cabernet Sauvignon-based wine with 14.5% natural alcohol, impressive purity, sweet tannin, decent acidity and a monolithic personality. Everything needed for a graceful evolution is present, and the 2006 should keep for another two decades. November 2013 Drink: 2013-2033 WA 94
