Grey Label Cabernet Sauvignon 2006

Member Review by ECD1955:

Recently did a comparative tasting to the 2005. The 2006 is of course more closed at the moment. While both are full-bodied the 2006 is generally lighter and less tannic than the 2005. Neither are really at their peak but I would try the 2006 again in 2011 as a 5 year old and leave the 2005 until 2012 or so. Expect they will be drinking very well at that point.

Suggested Recipe Pairing presented by
Layered Rice Pudding

RiceSelect's fragrant Jasmati® is blended with eggs, milk and fall's favorite spices, cinnamon and nutmeg, to create a delicious rice pudding, which is layered on top of fluffy cream cheese and abuttery pecan crust. Pairs well with a bold, tawny port with flavors of dried fruits, nuts, and spices.
