Aida Estate · 2006 · Cabernet Sauvignon
We have been fueled by our belief that Aida would be an ideal site for growing Bordeaux varietals since our acquisition of this wonderful site in 2000. Each harvest has affirmed our initial belief and makes us look forward to the following year.
Our 2006 Aida Estate Cabernet is rich and muscular. Prepare to be immediately captivated by this powerful wine’s deep aromas of shaved cocoa, black cassis and black cherries. On the palate, masculine notes of tar, licorice and burning embers add to this wine’s power and density, while sweet melted chocolate, caramel and warm stone provide plenty of finesse and juiciness. Firm tannins carry this wine through a seemingly endless finish.
Our 2006 Aida Estate Cabernet will benefit from cellaring from three to 20+ years.
