Rich sweet milk chocolaty covered nose with deep notes of integrated wood spice and some very sweet pipe tobacco. There's a nice light floral edge to the red fruit here and a slow to emerge base of earth builds in the glass. The fruit is really very curranty, black and red. Plush on entry but firm with well integrated acids lending nice clarity in the mouth. this is richly fruited and nearly perfectly proportioned, though still youthful. The fruit is bright, precise and fresh with lovely tannins adding detail and a nice tactile impression on the palate. Powerful and earthy this drives through the long finish with a blend of toasty oak and earthy fruit notes. It's a little hot on the finale but delivers alot of flavor and intensity in a rather streamlined and complex package. 92pts

Very herbal and floral nose, with cedar notes. Cherries, dark fruit and berry flavors. Dense, intense and concentrated. Finishes very long, with some nice smokey oak rounding it out. I paired this with a grilled coffee-crusted tenderloin and it was perfect.

The 2006 Andolsen CabernetSauvignon has a deep purple color with aromas of rich black fruits, cassis and hints of roses anddried herbs. Bright black cherry and black currants on the palate are accentuated by brown spiceand mocha leading to a lush mouth-feel supported by tannins, good structure and tannins andlingering on the long finish.


Winemaker's Notes:

These vines grow in decomposed volcanic rock that is mineral-rich. well drained and porous. encouraging the 20- to 40- year-old vines to dig deep in search of water. We pick grapes at optimum ripeness and make a wine that is elegant and rich with intense flavors and good acidity.
