Just A Little More Time... 2006 Reds Are Big and Bold!

Iain and I wrapped up a marathon tasting session at the winery yesterday and we came to conclusion that our 2006 red wines are just about ready to go. The 2006 Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir is already in the bottle and should be ready for an October or November release. The 2006 Dry Creek Valley Cabernet Sauvignon will be bottled this month and should also be ready for a December release. Unlike the 05' wines which did not need a lot of time to hit their stride, the 06' wines are big and bold with a firm tannin structure that you will surely notice. Be patient with these wines as it will be worth the wait.
