Knappstein Enterprise Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2006 - Case of 6
The best is yet to come for this Red Red Wine !
Having bought the previous available vintage from M&S - the outstanding 2005 and laid down as an accepted for such a great year ( ready from 2015 to 2020 plus - Hey come on ! we all know how time just flies) I could not resist the almost but not quite as great 2006 .A dozen into store also and one extra to see how it is age six . Mulberry , dense and fulsome on the palate with new cedar and iron fillings wrapped in a potent blckcurrant - leaf green cape and a long but nubile finish , the obvious sign that it also MUST have another four years sleep to even near it's best - at a MINIMUM . Very good wine in the making . To disturb before (as is the . . .' fashion ' - what is that about except money and disrespect of God , Mother Earth and it's maker ; a very potent and dangerous mix as most have seen and felt especially post 2007 ) would be immature in every sense of the word. Not only. . . ' Drink ' but recline in it's deep velvet brocade from 2016 to 2020 plus .
