Enjoyed this cab at a holiday party last week where my friend decided to uncork all the wines they’d received from friends in the last couple years. The first few bottles were what you’d expect from such an arrangement, but then, I saw him uncorking the 2006 Duckhorn Napa Cabernet Sauvignon and made sure to stay close by to get a couple pours.
Big mouthful or ripe dark berries and cherries with chocolate nuances and a bit of spice. Tannic finish that yearns for roasted meat. Complex yet refined wine – yum.
