Grand Ciel

2006 Grand Ciel Cabernet 1.5L Engraved

Cabernet Sauvignon

This wine, the third release of our single vineyard estate-grown Cabernet Sauvignon, has a complex and intense nose of blueberries, blackberries, black cherries, and cedar. A whiff of violets emerges after a few swirls of the glass. This opens on the palate with black currants, blueberries, cedar, and deep milk chocolate flavors. The combination of concentration, elegance and fine, silky tannins ensures that this wine will be delicious for many years to come.

The 2006 Grand Ciel Cabernet Sauvignon (100% varietal from the DeLille owned Grand Ciel Vineyard in the Red Mountain AVA) sports a captivating bouquet of wood smoke, herbs, balsamic, espresso, blackberry, and a hint of chocolate. Elegant on the palate with loads of savory fruit and spice elements, it personifies the phrase of the iron fist in the velvet glove. It will evolve for several more years and easily see its 20th birthday.
