This was one of three 2006 Napa cabs we opened for my 30th birthday. The other bottles were Pride Mountain and Larkmead Solari Reserve. All of the bottles decanted for three hours before serving. The Sequoia Grove is garnet in color with the rim showing just a slight amber hue. The nose was slightly astringent at first but then followed by bright cherry, raspberry and toast. In the mouth the wine is not heavy and just a touch drying, there is plenty of cherry and raspberry but also vanilla, tobacco and cedar. Nice balance between the tannins, acidity, and fruit. This bottle is a great bottle but scored third in our tasting.

This wine pours clear inky red color with some slightly lighter hues around the edges. Ample smells of cherries, cedar, tobacco, cloves and other spices. Starts off with a lot of red fruit, cherries mostly. In the middle, some all-spice and cedar balance out the fruit. This lasts throughout the whole rest of the tasting. A nice full-bodied red, nice balance. The tannins are still ample but not overpowering.

Decanted for about 45 minutes. Pours a dark inky violet color with dark red hues on the edges. As this decants, the aromas of red berries, plums, spices and vanilla come through. Starts off with ample cherry flavors up front. On the middle of the palate, more cherry flavor with strong undertones of tobacco, spices and vanilla. Finishes with a slight diminishing of cherry flavor and more tovacco, cinnamon, cloves, coriander and vanilla. This is a bold full bodied red wine. Nice structure and ample tannins on the back of the palate.


Tasting Notes:

Inky red in color with an immediate hit of juicy, red cherries and fresh raspberries with background notes of red plum. Caramelized toast and cinnamon and clove aromas wave in the background. There is a hint of sage, cigar box, and that classic ‘allspice’ note. Well balanced palate with nice acid, round, subtle tannins and a lingering finish.
