Angel Favorite Announcement:
Cellar Angels welcomes back Delgadillo Cellars as they allocate a few bottles of their remaining few 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon to our members. Wildly popular the last time we featured it, if you're running low or missed it altogether, now is your chance. When you order, Ignacio Delgadillo asks that you choose SOC-F as your charity selection. A cause near and dear to him, SOC-F raises money to assist the families of fallen special operations military units.
FOUR vintages of this precious juice have graced our pages, and it only gets better with time. We are honored to introduce the 2006.
As I approached the wine again, the primal fruit aromas came bounding from the glass. On inspection the wine is dark ruby at the edge and deep purple to black in the center. Concentrated for sure, as the cork reflects the same intense, inky color. Also notable are the long, slow legs after a swirl.
The aromas are penetrating and captivating with blueberry essence, blackberry pie, cassis liqueur, leather, eucalyptus and dried thyme. The aromas carry through to the palate along with mocha, cinnamon, licorice and black pepper. The finish is long, easily 25-30 seconds, lingering and magical with a full mouth-feel. The tannins are softening but provide perfect structure to the wine.
Nine years of aging has been good to this wine. The practice and care Delgadillo Cellars takes to release a wine when it is mature and showing best is definitely to the fine wine connoisseur's benefit.
If you were lucky enough to access some of the 2003, 2004 and 2005 Delgadillo Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon previously featured on Cellar Angels, open all four and have a vertical tasting!
