Brander Bouchet Cabernet Franc. Cabernet Sauvignon. Syrah Central Coast Santa Ynez Valley 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Notes on the Brander Bouchet Cabernet Franc/Cabernet Sauvignon Estate Bottled Santa Ynez 2006 : NVWE NOTES: This gorgeous wine reveals its reliance on Cabernet Franc in its beautiful aromas of red raspberry, spiced red rose, cinnamon, minerals, roasted cereal grains and core of sweet red cherry. It is sleek, polished and very flavorful on the palate, with fine zest and well defined flavors of red currant, red cherry, rose, cinnamon and vanilla. Lingering and polished and beautifully balanced, the finish begs for service with sauced meat dishes. A blend of 50% Cabernet Franc, 45% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Syrah. 300 cases produced.BRANDER BOUCHET CABERNET FRANC/CABERNET SAUVIGNON ESTATE BOTTLED SANTA YNEZ 2006

Wine Tasting NotesWe picked the Cabernet Sauvignon the last week in October and the wait really paid off. Dark cherries, full-bodied and very pure fruit. Very dark color, spicy cassis fruit.
