2006 provided a growing season of normalcy, following the heat of ’03, the cooler ’04, and the drought of ’05. The hillside vines responded beautifully, providing a classic statement of our DuBrul Vineyard. The wine is deep garnet in color, with a nose of exotic spice, deep cassis, and Kahlua undertones. Flavors of cherry, blackberry, raspberry, espresso, and cocoa are well integrated. The palate coating richness and length of finish are signature DuBrul Vineyard.
