Vampire Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Recas DOC 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Tasting Notes Vampire Cabernet Sauvignon is sourced from several small-berry clones of this traditional Bordeaux varietal, grown in the Paso Robles region of California's Central Coast.~An extended growing season, with sunny, moderate daytime temperatures, along with cool summer nights, allows ideal fruit development at this site.~Well-drained soils, rich in maritime fossils, add uniquely aromatic components to this fruit-forward wine. Classic, small-lot fermentations, followed by aging with both European and American oak, gives full expression to the rich varietal flavors in this wine.~Judiciously blended with small amounts of Merlot for softness, and Syrah for added structure, our Cabernet displays ripe flavor character and a lovely aroma that will continue to develop with additional time in bottle. Ideal for grilled steaks and chops, or with rich red pasta dishes, our Cabernet Sauvignon is well-suited for the table, and is a wonderful complement to any fine meal.

Kinda closed- could open up a bit more. Good solid flavors, nose is a bit closed. Not oaky.
