2006 Vintage

A cool wet spring and then a record heat wave in July kept our vineyard managers busy during 2006. The weather turned cool again in September though and long mild days allowed us to delay harvest until the third week in October. The resulting wines have much in common with our 2002 and 2004 vintages.

2006 Baconbrook Cabernet Sauvignon (750ml) MV-750-06-BB

The impressive 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon Baconbrook does not possess any aggressive or rustic tannins. It offers pure red, blue, and black fruits intermixed with notions of crushed rocks and flowers. Medium to full-bodied with excellent balance, ripeness, depth, and length, it will benefit from 1-3 years of cellaring, and should easily last 15-18 years. 90 points. Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate #186 Dec 2009
