Scents of plum, flowers and gravel along with chocolate and toast. Some earth. Huge acid on this wine! Ripe dark fruits and minerality. Licorice and espresso finish. Acid and tannin are out of balance in my opinion, so leave it along for another 6 months or more. 83 pts. 8/12/11 at Winery
Barnyard and earth on the nose. Also, notes of purple violets, blackberry, black cherry and black plums, cassis and saddle leather. St. Estephe in style. Needs more time to open and relax. 87 pts. 8/12/11 at Winery
Polishy nose, filled with dense cassis. Some hints of red currant as well. It's a very muscular wine of dark cassis fruit and mixed herbs with hints of new oak. Also, hints of camphor/menthol and some wet stone. Dark and brooding fruit. It has a nice minerality and good acid.
Excellent. Great with a medium well cheeseburger. I get a heavy delicious dose of Dr. Brown's Black Cherry Soda but chocolate dipped. This wine is decadent without too much oak. Ready to drink now with decanting or can hold for a few years.
This 2006 Pepper Bridge Cabernet is one of the best Cab's I have had in a long time, and especially for under $40.00 in fact I paid less then $30.00 each! It definitely needs to be decanted, much sediment found in the 4 bottles I've laid down in my controlled temperature cellar for a short time. When first opened: Color; Dark Rich Ruby vibrancy, absolutely beautiful; A nice floral nose of Black Cheries with quick passing of honeysuckle. On the pallet, a swirl of Berries/Dark Black Cheries/ with a hint of Chocolate,encaptured in a very delicate white pepper and clean ocean mist, followed by a smooth swallowing texture. After decanting and allowed to open up an hour or so, all were present above mentioned, but better. For it was now even smoother as it was to be expected. My only mistake was not to buy more at the time and let them cellar for a few more years. This 2006 is very drinkable now, for sure, excellent, for the proof was in that I drank all mine without waiting, but the regret was to be a little more patient, as I will be on my next purchase of the same.... Salute
