Rich, ripe fruit with both power and elegance is what we've come to expect from the better Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignons. Duckhorn may not be known for Cabernet (Merlot being its Big Dawg) but it is consistently one of the finest in the valley. The '06 shows pretty aromas of cassis and blackberry, with fine tannins, hints of leather, lead pencil and spice, and a long, seductive finish. This is Yowza! Napa Valley Cab and while superb now, it will improve over the next eight to ten years in a proper cellar.

An enjoyable Cab for its lush mouthfeel and ample flavors of blackberries, black currants, cherries, spices and smoky oak. Feels rich and savory all the way through. The tannins are certainly present, but they're refined.
