Tychson Hill Vineyard, Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 

2006 Tychson Hill Vineyard, Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

Winemaker notes from Allison Tauziet:

"The 2006 vintage Tychson Hill Vineyard Cabernet is a wonderfully aromatic wine. The wine is laced with a beautiful gravelly note, as well as an element of graphite. Feminine aromas of honeysuckle, perfume and talc leap from the glass, followed by darker notes of charcoal smoke, wet stone and barbecue spices. On the palate, the wine has a deliciously round and plush entry. There is great finesse to the tannin, which is quite silky.

As we aged this vintage of Tychson Hill Cabernet in barrel, the tannins became more and more polished, and we captured that at just the right moment for bottling, in August 2008. The wine is delightfully approachable upon release, yet will age gracefully for 15 to 20 years. "

We released 250 cases of the 2006 "Tychson Hill Vineyard" Cabernet Sauvignon in March 2010.
