Trefethen Rl-Dry 2006
The colour is a deep inky red. There is good concentration of violets on the nose with some lifted perfume from the Petit Verdot. The palate is rich, ripe and medium to full bodied. The wine is bursting with flavours of blackcurrant, plums and christmas pudding and shows great balance with the supporting spicy oak adding complexity and character. The tannins are chewy and complement the mouthfilling flavour you get when you taste the wine. The wine has great vibrancy and poise which are evident on the long seamless finish.
I must admit that I am trying this wine while on malbec kick. That said I like this wine. Dark fruit, coco and earthiness on the nose. Plum, minty and earthiness, smooth tannins and a long finish. Yummy wine, great with a skirt steak.
eh. it's ok. not great, not bad... but, i keep reaching back for the glass. Typical inexpensive zin, though more translucent than most... Raspberry/cherry jam with a little wood on the finish. Moderate tannins, definitely drinking hot and out of balance--too much alcohol. somewhat one note. would drink again, but probably not purchase again... My rating: 74/100 For the money: 80/100

The 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon Cinq Cepages (in this vintage, truly a Cabernet Sauvignon rather than a proprietary red as it is a blend of 83% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Merlot, Malbec, Cabernet Franc, and Petit Verdot) possesses soft, seductive no...

Elegant and refined, with a plush underpinning to the luscious raspberry, blackberry and black plum fruit, shaded with subtle hints of peppermint and a whiff of char as the finish sails on smoothly.

The 2006 I Sodi di San Niccolo is fabulous. Beautifully delineated aromatics meld into a breathtaking array of dark fruit, crushed rocks, smoke, tar, minerals and flowers in this totally thrilling Tuscan red. The fruit completely saturates the palate... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. A Proprietary Blend wine from Tuscany in Italy. 2006 Castellare I Sodi di San Niccolo Vino da Tavola 750ml
Dunkles Rubinrot mit violetten Reflexen, Fruchtig und lebhaft mit Noten von Beeren, Kirschen und Pflaumen. Vollmundig und angenehm im Gaumen , lang und fruchtig im Abgang.
Sattes Rubin mit violetten Reflexen. Waldbeeren und schwarze Kirschen in der fruchtigen Nase, feiner Veilchen- und Rosenduft dahinter. Saftiger Gaumen, wieder viel blaue und schwarze Frucht, dezente Moccanote. Ein Schmeichler bis ins füllig nachklingende Finale und ein grossartiger Weinwert aus dem sonnigen Kalifornien.
Showing the usual balance and harmony of this bottling, which is made from the five Bordeaux varieties, the '06 nonetheless lacks a bit of the richness of other vintages. It's beautifully clean and dry, with sound currant, blackberry, herb tea and ce... Wine Enthusiast. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 2006 St Jean, Chateau Cinq Cepages 750ml
Distinctly spicy, with cinnamon and white pepper overtones to the focused red berry and cherry fruit, persisting on the expressive finish and lingering beautifully. Needs time to settle in, but this has the goods to age. Best from 2010 through 2016. ... Wine Spectator.

Juicy and mouth-filling, this wine bursts with bright raspberries, blueberries, blackberries and café au lait. Big, chewy tannins surround a complex core of black fruit and hints of tasty oak that last throughout a long finish.
