Kamen Estate Wines 2006 Estate Cabernet Sauvignon, Sonoma, CA
A dark, ruby red to deep violet in color. Beautiful, soaring aromas of ripe blue and black fruit with a subtle background of slightly roasted oak along with dark chocolate, licorice and cinnamon lifted by a floral element. Mouth filling, exotic flavors are an irresistible combination of sweet brambly fruit, concentrated ripe blackberries, dark plums, tobacco and mocha. On the palate, the wine is round, expansive and full-bodied with the stuffing to support its big, dusty tannins. The wine possesses a layered mouth feel, balance, great power and very fine acidity which rounds out the flavorful and wonderfully long finish. This is a very stylish wine with great fruit, elegance and complexity. Winemaker Mark Herold believes that the 2006 Kamen Cabernet Sauvignon will drink well for 15 to 20 years or more.
