Not much different from the 2005 vintage. Solid cab with good balance of fruit, tannins, and oak - none of which are overdone.

Wine Tasting Notesthis Cabernet offers New World aromas of cherry and raspberry, with spicy notes of nutmeg and coffee oak, with slight vanilla (French Vanilla, of course). The wine enters with juicy red berry flavors, and offers a very approachable, rich and full mouthfeel with a wonderful finish worthy of an exhibitionist. Good structure, polished tannins that promise an ever more complex wine to come, with lively acidity and subtle spice. Cabernet has become one of Bonterras most popular varietals, and we know why.

External Review

Dichtes Purpur-Granat. Blaubeeren und schwarzer Holunder in der offenen Nase, Brombeeren und feine Himbeernote dahinter. Samtiger Gaumenfluss mit zartpelzigen Tanninen und püreeartigem Extrakt, wieder blaue und schwarze Beeren, nun auch Cassis und schwarze Schokolade, gute Länge.

External Review

A zesty, youthful fruit bomb that's loaded with spicy wild berry, cracked pepper and licorice aromas and ripe berry cobbler flavors. Drink now.

"McNab Red wine 2006 has aromas of blackberries

External Review

Rustically tannic and a little on the thin side, but rewards for wild berry and tobacco flavors and a dry, spicy finish. This is a Zin to gulp with hard cheeses.

External Review

A little on the sweet extracted side, but balanced with rich, fine tannins and just-in-time acidity. The blackberry, currant, raspberry and cocoa flavors will play well against a grilled steak.
