2006 Steltzner Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon, SLD
One of our signature wines, this Cabernet starts with inky red and ruby hues, along with hints of dark berries, sage, and spice. Fine grain tannins provide structure and a long finish.
This wine is a blend from all eight blocks of Cabernet Sauvignon from the property, along with some Merlot and Cabernet Franc. The nose starts with floral hints of violets and roses. There is a nice mix of fruit aromas including blackberry, cherry and blueberries. Also exhibits some nice spice and sage characteristics.
Mouth: The front fruit flavors highlight a nice mix of blueberries, cherries and blackberries with some floral note, (think rose petals). There is a nice sense of weight and texture over the whole palate. A balanced acidity level with nice, fine grain tannins that provide structure and a long enjoyable finish.
